Cundall was appointed as BEAM, LEED and sustainability consultant for the project of Science Park Phase 3, which has achieved a LEED v2009 Platinum rating and aiming to achieve a HK BEAM Plus Platinum rating. The 'Back to Basic' design approach was adopted, incorporating cost effective and functional green building design concepts, stepping away from services overprovision using passive devices and avoiding over-complicated systems.
The development creates a sustainable working environment, encouraging cultural change, with a 'green education programme' consisting of a guided tour including a smartphone app to showcase the building design, its features and its measured performance to influence visitors and tenants.
The buildings' courtyard atriums allow for daylight diffusion as well as for natural cross-ventilation. Energy efficient envelopes for the buildings include: the insulated west façade, insulated green roof, optimised window areas, the highly insulated spandrel area and use of double-low-E glazing. The site boasts an extensive green landscape that covers 40% of the site. A weather-control low pressure drip irrigation system featured in the design, which should result in potable water efficiency.
The masterplan and the buildings are designed to target best performance in:
The Children’s Hospital is the largest Design & Construction building project to date from the Architectural Service Department of HKSAR, when measured by contract sum. This is also the first specialist Children’s Hospital in Hong Kong.
