Tour Highlights
PMQ
Urban Oasis in Industrial Setting: Conversion of Chai Wan Factory Estate to Public Rental Housing (Wah Ha Estate)
Towngas Headquarter

This site of PMQ has inherited very rich historic and contextual qualities, so the conservation philosophy is to devise different ways to better exhibit the existing historical elements to the general public. The design team not only maintained the façade and streetscape, but also the interior spatial qualities. The old layout for lodging has been adaptively reused for mixed new functions including residences, workshops, etc. Alterations are mostly introverted and transparent, e.g. UIA, the Cube, glass canopy, etc, so as to harmoniously co-exist with the original fabric and streetscape. This approach has preserved the historical relics as far as practicable, which also greatly reduced construction wastes and associated pollutions that could otherwise be generated.

Towngas is one of the largest energy suppliers in Hong Kong, operating with world-class corporate management and leading-edge business practices. With the ultimate aim of protecting environment, they have fully integrated environmental consideration into the business model. Towngas Headquarters have achieved numerous building sustainability objectives and it is the first non-residential building in Hong Kong which has achieved the highest level of recognition under the BEAM Plus Final Assessment for existing buildings.

During the visit, Towngas will deliver a presentation to introduce their environmental initiatives and achievements. There will also be a guided tour to visit their green and innovative facilities such as oil-free variable speed water-cooled chiller, roof organic garden, green kitchen and the hall of innovation.

“How to provide a sustainable living environment from a derelict Grade II Historic Building located within an industrial area which is subject to severe noise pollution from nearby industrial buildings and transportation facilities, and at the same time, to maximise the development potential of the site as well as to conserve the historical values of this 53 years old architecture?” This is the biggest challenge of this project.

Wah Ha Estate is converted from the historical Chai Wan Factory Estate built in 1959.  It is the last surviving H-shaped factory building in Hong Kong.  The Government announced the conversion in 2012 with an aim to increase and expedite the short-term public housing supply.  The project underwent an extremely fast track programme completing in 2016 providing 187 flats to about 600 tenants who are on waiting list.

Originally named “Hei Lo”, King Yin Lei was built by Mr. Shum Yat-chor and Mrs. Shum Li Po-lun in 1937. Mr. Shum Yat-chor was a notable merchant and philanthropist in Xinhui of Guangdong Province.  King Yin Lei has been a popular spot for taking photographs by visitors. The mansion has been featured in films of international renown such as "Soldier of Fortune" (1955) and a locally produced television series "Delightful Dream of the Capital" (1980).

As the Peak area was a traditional residence of foreigners, the location of King Yin Lei symbolizes the rise of the Chinese merchant class. It also represents an earlier phase of Hong Kong history when the upper-class residential area took shape in the Mid-levels.

King Yin Lei reflects the excellence of design and construction in both Chinese and Western architecture, which is a rarity in Hong Kong as well as an outstanding work of art.

This guided tour will provide participants with a valuable opportunity to take a closer look at King Yin Lei.

Tour Highlights
Energizing Kowloon East Office
Trade and Industry Tower
Yau Lai Estate Phase 5

The Energizing Kowloon East Office (EKEO) Temporary Office is a champion of sustainability by using integrated green building technologies and features, lean construction methods and low embodied energy materials.  The building adopts modular construction approach by using recycled freight containers and reusable structural steel members, which can be easily dismantled and reused at other site.  It is the first temporary office building which is given the BEAM Plus NB V1.1 Platinum rating.

To transform Kowloon East into a green community and promote sustainable development, we advocate low-carbon and environmentally-friendly designs in buildings. On public projects, low carbon and sustainable design concept is employed in government projects. On private sector, EKEO coordinated with government departments/ bureaux to specify in the land sale conditions for private development to achieve Gold or above rating under BEAM Plus NB, raise the greening ratio, provide smart meters and EV charging facilities, to name but a few.  We also encourage the developers to adopt low-carbon architectural designs in order to minimise the impacts on the environment.  To promote low carbon buildings, a Green Map is developed at the website of EKEO.  It highlights Green Buildings and Green Check Points in Kowloon East to provide diversified environmental friendly information to the public.

The Trade and Industry Tower (TI Tower) comprises a 22-storey tower and a single storey Community Hall. 

In keeping with the “Green City” concept in Kai Tak Development Area, emphasis of the project is placed on energy conservation and greening.  A series of renewable energy technologies, including photovoltaic system, solar hot water system, solar chimney and daylight suntubes are incorporated.  In addition to lush landscaping at ground floor, landscaped deck and the main roof, the project also features vertical greening on building facades. In terms of recycled and environmental features, the project uses rainwater for landscape irrigation and adopts an automatic refuse collection system as well as uses low-emitting materials.  Also, the project is connected to the District Cooling System in the Kai Tak Development Area for air-conditioning.

“How to create a sustainable living environment right next to a cross harbour tunnel portal in a compact city?”

Being a green estate completed in 2011 featuring universal accessibility and mixed use,  Yau Lai Estate Phase 5 provides homes for 2002 families in two 39-storey housing blocks, alongside169 car parking spaces, a Day Care Centre for the Elderly, an Early Training and Education Centre and a Kindergarten; all blend in with a landscape podium with noise abatement measures in a garden setting.

Showcasing about 10 green features, the planning and design theme for Yau Lai Estate Phase 5 is to create a sustainable community for a green and healthy living habitat through a holistic approach to optimize the development potential and enhance the built environment in the neighbourhood. It is an integral part of Yau Lai Estate comprising a total of 13 residential buildings and a shopping centre.

Kowloon (Route 2)

Tour Highlights
Kai Tak Development on 3 Muk Chui Street
Electrical and Mechanical Services Department Headquarters
Energizing Kowloon East Office

Kai Tak Development on 3 Muk Chui Street focuses on building community, sustainability, and modest yet practical design.  It comprises three 23-storey towers, an elderly friendly low-rise block, and a retail block.

Multiple levels of communal spaces encourage community building and enhance connections and communication.  Central courtyard is infused with community rooms, children’s play, tai-chi area and urban farm; Low-rise block rooftop garden provides green space for passive use and pleasant view to higher units; the Roof Clubhouse has a jogging track sheltered by a covered walkway alongside outdoor fitness equipment, barbecue area and multi-purpose rooftop pavilions. 

The design has achieved BEAM Plus Platinum rating (provisional).  Permeability to pedestrian level is enhanced by the design of podium free towers with vertical ventilation slots. Naturally ventilation and daylighting are optimised in the design of the units, lobbies, and community spaces. Greywater recycling, use of energy labelled appliances, LED lightings, insulated glass, etc., reduce water and energy consumption.  Precast facades and aluminium formwork reduce production waste.

The architecture has modest use of materials with basic provisions.  Juxtaposition of activities promotes communal and healthy life style.  Through interplay of indoor and outdoor spaces, the architecture connects its occupants to their new environment.

The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department Headquarters Building (EMSD HQs) successfully exhibited an excellent showcase of sustainable development through complete renovation of the old structure of a former air cargo terminal building into an office-cum- workshop building.  As a pioneer in advocating environmental responsiveness, EMSD continues to adopt a proactive approach for promoting energy efficiency and sustainability.

Since moving in the new headquarters in 2005, we have been implementing many enhancements to our indoor and outdoor facilities and environment in various aspects to making the EMSD HQs to become greener and more sustainable.  These enhancements include application of many advanced technologies leading to energy conservation, waste reduction and better environmental quality.  Examples include the use of high efficiency oil free chiller, LED luminaires, rain water harvesting system, food waste decomposer, sun tracking photovoltaic system, solar hot water system and solar lamp poles, reuse of air-conditioning condensates for toilet flushing and pioneer to use BIM technology for asset management of building services installations.

Further enhancements are under construction or planning and they include adoption of district cooling for building air-conditioning, implementation of building energy management system, modification of education path for promotion of public awareness of energy efficiency and new technologies, and improvement of outdoor areas to well integrate with the community for enhanced public enjoyment.  They are not just to meet the changes in operational need of the Department but also to enhance sustainability for the sake of our staff, our neighbours and the public.

In addition to the above enhancements, EMSD has implemented green procurement policy, environmental management and energy management to advocate good practice of operation and management for the building.

The Energizing Kowloon East Office (EKEO) Temporary Office is a champion of sustainability by using integrated green building technologies and features, lean construction methods and low embodied energy materials.  The building adopts modular construction approach by using recycled freight containers and reusable structural steel members, which can be easily dismantled and reused at other site.  It is the first temporary office building which is given the BEAM Plus NB V1.1 Platinum rating.
