The Hong Kong Science Park Phase 3 development pushed the boundaries on reduction, efficiency and generation. Using our expertise in sustainable technologies and materials, we project managed one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in Hong Kong.
Key sustainability features include natural ventilation to office areas, solar cooling technologies, solar tracking louvres, phase changing materials and thermal and rainwater storage facilities.
Through value engineering we saved the client money by upgrading the existing district cooling system - eliminating the need for a new energy tower. Energy efficient envelopes for the buildings include insulated façades and green roofs, optimised window areas, highly insulated areas and use of double glazed, low emissive windows.
