Overall Score

The Sui Loong Pao Building was built in 1976. This alteration and addition works aims to meet the needs of the new users, the Bursary units, by providing new office spaces through suitable re-partitioning and improving the accessibility with the installation of new lift, and ramp and disabled toilets for wheelchair users. An open plan approach was adopted for the majority area to bring in daylight to the inner spaces. An annex was built at the ground floor level to increase usable office space. The materials chosen for the finishes have been considered with aesthetic, environmental and economical concern. The site works started in June 2016 and was completed in Jan 2018.
