Overall Score

This project is a multi-storey development at a “Government, Institution or Community” site of about 7 000 square metres (m2) abutting on Sheung Tat Street, Sheung Mau Street and Sheung On Street in Chai Wan for the construction of the Complex under the concept of single site with multiple uses. The site is used for reprovisioning the existing facilities and providing additional facilities for five government departments, namely the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF), the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD), the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD), the Government Logistics Department (GLD) and the Government Laboratory (GL).

Project aims to achieve the People-centric Design and promote long-term sustainability with enhancing the well-being of the city and its citizens. To improve the staff enjoyment and make use of the natural sitting of the building, landscape corridors with horizontal and vertical greening are provided to bring vibrancy and liveliness to the dull and monotonous vibe of Chai Wan Industrial neighborhood.

BEAM Plus NB V2.0 Provisional Assessment Certificate – Platinum Rating is achieved. Energy saving strategy is widely adopted in the project including motion sensors for lighting control, nano reflectors, LED luminaires and etc. PowerBoxTM is installed to monitor the electricity consumption of building services installations. Innovative features are also adopted for smart operation, safety enhancement, energy optimization and improvement of service quality.

During the construction phase, we endeavor to achieve waste management and pollution control such as adopting excavated soil for backfilling, material recycle cargo, reused formwork as lateral support.
