Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities - Fire Station Cum Ambulance Depot
The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Port (HKP) of approximate 150 hectare in size is located on a reclaimed artificial island off the north-east of the Hong Kong International Airport. It provides a road-base strategic link to the Greater Bay Area via the HZMB since its commissioning on 24 October 2018.
The Fire Station Cum Ambulance Depot, located at the south of HZMB HKP, is a 2-storey building with an ancillary 8-storey drill tower. The Depot provides firefighting, rescue and ambulance services at the vicinity of HKP and HZMB Hong Kong section.
As the Government's initiative to encourage the construction of green buildings in Hong Kong, the then Environment, Transport and Works Bureau technical circular (Works) (the TCW) requires all works departments to adopt energy efficient features and renewable energy technologies in government projects and installations wherever practicable. Under the TC(W), all new government buildings with construction floor area exceeding 10,000 square metres should aim to obtain at least the second highest grade under an internationally or locally recognized building environmental assessment system. The Fire Station Cum Ambulance Depot was enrolled in the local Hong Kong Green Building Council BEAM Plus scheme with target gold grading which is the second highest grading under the BEAM Plus scheme although the building GFA is less than threshold of 10,000 m2.
The Government’s policy was a strong driver in the planning and design stages of the Fire Station Cum Ambulance Depot. The installation of island-wide green facilities (e.g. District Seawater Cooling System and Reclaimed Water System) has brought significant environmental benefits to all HKP users. The use of District Seawater Cooling System consumes less electrical energy and minimizes greenhouse gases and contaminants to the environment. The use of Reclaimed Water System for flush water supply does not only save water but also reduce the amount of treated effluent being discharged to the adjacent water body and thus benefits the North Western Water Control Zone water quality.
Since the Fire Station Cum Ambulance Depot’s commissioning, government officers working at the building have been benefited from the well-designed indoor air, acoustic, thermal and lighting quality.
