Final Gold

The project site occupies an area of 8,278 square meters (m2) at Yen Ming Road, West Kowloon Reclamation Area. The scope of works includes the provision of vehicle depot, storage and offices.

Green Features

Site Aspects

  • Maximize the greening area to about 30% of the site coverage;
  • Provide high emissivity and green roof to mitigate heat island effect;
  • Environmental pollution is strictly monitored and controlled during construction.

Materials Aspects

  • Use of sustainable forest product in fitting-out works;
  • Select refrigerants with low contribution of ozone depletion and global warming potential and avoid using ozone depleting substances.

Energy Use

  • Adopt efficient building envelope to reduce solar heat gain;
  • Provide highly efficient VRV and chillers for AC system;
  • PV panels and solar panels are installed on roof. The energy generated from the PV panels can contribute to the electricity supply of lighting system and that from solar panels can offset energy consumption from hot water;
  • Adopt sensor based demand control ventilation system in carpark for better control of pollutant concentrations and promote energy saving.

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • Introduce natural lighting to most office area, which can connect occupants with outdoor environment and effectively reduce energy consumption of artificial lighting;
  • Indoor Air Quality is of great concern and ventilation design follows ASHRAE requirements. IAQ strategy is also provided to reduce outdoor source of pollution by the use of highly efficient air filters. Indoor sources of air pollution is also controlled by the use of materials with low TVOC and formaldehyde and flush out;
  • Quality artificial lighting is designed for normal occupied and not normally occupied area, with the provision of lighting controls.

Water Use

  • Adopt water efficient sanitary devices to conserve water resources;
  • Rain harvesting system is provided and the recycled water will be used for irrigation.

Innovations and Additions

  • Twin tanks for potable and flushing water supply systems are adopted to enhance the continuity of water supply during maintenance.
