BSL is the owner of the BEAM Plus Assessment Tools and the office achieved Platinum rating under BEAM Plus Interiors (BI) v1.0 Accreditation upon the renovation of the existing office itself.

The renovation project is themed to epitomise the key concepts of BEAM Plus Assessment tools, i.e. providing a comfortable yet simple workplace with various green features illustrating how a balance of sustainability and working efficiency could be achieved at a modest budget.

Story

BEAM Society Limited continuously strives to improve the overall quality of built environment in Hong Kong. It is crucial of BEAM Society Limited to practise what we preach. Over these years we have reached for technical excellence by developing assessment tools for every stage of the whole building life cycle, from planning, building design, construction on site, and fit-out to operation.

Green Features

In order to cope with the standard of our self-established assessment tool, BEAM Plus Interiors V1.0., our in-house renovation taskforce group, project manager and consultants have put in great efforts in identifying and selecting the appropriate green materials at reasonable cost while preserving creativity and the utmost importance of safety during construction and at work. In this regard, we have implemented various approaches to reflect BSL’s firm conviction on what a green office should possess.
