We also closely monitor our environmental performance and work closely with our contractors to minimize carbon footprint.

In order to improve human health and well-being in 8 Bay East, we conduct wind tunnel study and optimize the air ventilation for its surrounding. The design of 8 Bay East boasts a podium minimized with the tower positioned at the north-east site boundary to encourage prevailing winds to reach the pedestrian level. The improvement to better air ventilation is up to 400% in Hoi Bun Road Park with the annual prevailing winds. The 1,472 s.m. of landscape and open spaces for chill out and relax.

8 Bay East has reviewed the framework of WELL and implemented anti-microbial surface treatment for all high-touch surfaces; extra volume of fresh air supply; MERV 13 air filter and UV lamp treatment for air supply to provide the cleanest air; and air purifier in every washroom. Nano-silver titanium oxide photocatalytic coating is also applied in all washroom, door handles, lift call panels, railings and furniture in common areas. All pantry is fitted with water filters with ultrafiltration technology and four-stage filtration. The hollow fibre ultrafiltration technology filters down to 0.01 micron and delivers excellent potable water to benefit the occupants.
