Publisher’s Note 編者的話 Asia is a phenomenally interesting continent. In the 60s, Hong Kong began to develop and grow, aided largely by the manufacturing sector, as much of the region remained locked in turmoil. These were heady days and an era when the Western world was smitten by the charms of the still exotic and always mysterious Orient. Yet the region wasn’t known for originality, creativity or craftsmanship. Mass production had many benefits, as did the eventual end to regional conflicts by the late 70’s, but that time, a mere generation ago, now seems so distant. The Asia of 2012 is dynamic, increasingly sophisticated and ever more discerning. To see this one need look no further than the projects being delivered by the construction sector; smart materials and smart buildings, and low impact developments for highly demanding modern metropolises. Around the region, from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur, from Shenzhen to Shanghai, the world we are building for ourselves today was, literally, the stuff of science fiction just a few years ago. To all those inspired individuals whose projects we feature on the following pages, we salute you. Our sector’s accomplishments are truly the stuff of legend. 亞洲是一個充滿傳奇的地方；香港在六十年代面對很多不明朗的因素，但憑藉製造業的發 展，香港經濟得到了全速的發展及騰飛，這可能是因為西方對東方的陌生，對「亞洲製造 」而大感興趣吧！然而，亞洲卻不是以原創、創意及細緻的手工而聞名。大量生產模式的 確帶來很多經濟上的利益；但到了七十年代，隨著東方神秘的面紗逐步揭開，市場優勢亦 開始減少。 在2012年，亞洲已是一個充滿動感、對每事每物都有嚴格要求，及具批判性的社會，而 這些社會價值亦在建築工業上展現出來。我們要求建築物無論在用料、設計及技術，均需 要智能化來滿足社會不斷提升的要求之餘，亦要為環境帶來最少的影響。環顧區內不同城 市如上海、深圳、吉隆坡及香港等，我們不難發現四周的建築就好像從前看的科幻小說一 樣，由「不可能」變成今天的尋常。我們在今期《 PRC 建設 》會向大家介紹區內的矚目 項目，並向他們致敬，他們傑出的成就創造了現代以至未來的傳奇。
KLIFD formally launched as Tun Razak Exchange
URA invites 18 developers to tender for site
Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, on 30 July, launched the Kuala Lumpur International Financial District (KLIFD) which aims to be Malaysia’s first planned financial district. The project, which Najib said would generate RM26 billion in gross development value and 500,000 jobs, is aimed to make the country’s capital the region’s financial hub. Developer, Putrajaya’s development arm, 1Malaysia Development Bhd, said the state of the art infrastructure and technology used to construct the district named after Najib’s father, the Tun Razak Exchange, was expected to attract global players to relocate there. The masterplan, covering more than 283,000m², will be allocated for mixed-use purposes and will include a 380m tall signature tower, a mass rail transit station, stock exchange, offices, hotels, retail and residences. 30% of the site will be publically accessible green space. The first phase of development is due for completion in 2016 and is expected to generate RM3.6 billion in foreign direct investments.The Prime Minister said his government would ensure the success of the project with the announcement of several incentives including a 10-year, 100% income tax exemption and easing business regulations.

A lighting exhibition by Chi-yung Wong Currently on at agnès b.’s Librairie Gallerie in Wan Chai is the latest exhibition from Hong Kong media artist Chi-yung Wong. Entitled Les Lumières Imaginaires, this exhibition was conceived as a reflection of the seemingly contradictory qualities of light, being unobtrusive yet invasive, intangible yet primitive to our minds. “It takes 8.333 minutes for sunlight to reach our earth. Most stars we see at night no longer exist, it’s just the light streaming from the last explosion which happened millions of years ago. Senses are the media whereby we make sense of our environment, but how reliable are they? How can we be so sure ‘now’ is ‘now?” asks the artist whose works now draw large and growing crowds in Hong Kong. Wong explores the ideas of the Big Bang, parallel universes and the influences of the enlightenment period into his own personal imaginarium that creates a mysterious alternative reality. Composers Pierre Faa, Steve Hui, Martin and Tôn-Thât An were invited to compose the music specially for the exhibition which runs through to September.

Atkins wins Masterplan in Central Beijing Atkins’ masterplan for a new advertising and creative arts zone in Beijing, aimed at rivalling the success of areas such as Soho in London and Madison Avenue in New York, has been chosen following an international design competition. The National Advertising Industry Park is located to the south of the Central Business District of Beijing. It will house both Chinese and international advertising and creative industry companies and is intended to be a national hub for these sectors.The project was formally launched by Mayor of Beijing Guo Jinlong at a public ceremony recently. The site sits next to the Tonghui River and it represents a major brownfield redevelopment opportunity, something that is rare in a world city such as Beijing. The site is a mile long stretch of land fronting the Tonghui River, the ancient imperial “Grand Canal” that connects Beijing with Hangzhou. The masterplan includes over 30 buildings, ranging in size from small scale creative industry studios, to a museum and conference centre and a series of landmark towers and office buildings. Peter Ridley, Atkins’ senior design director said, “This was a high profile and hard fought competition and our success was due to a design that was focused on the needs of end users, some of China’s most creative companies. We prioritised elements that worked on a human scale, creating a streetscape feel that make areas such as Soho in London so attractive.” More information at www.atkinsglobal.com.

4N unveils Lan Kwai Fong Champagne lounge
HK residential market to remain stable Knight Frank announced in July that though new Chief Executive Leung Chun Ying has been seen as supportive of policy reforms which would challenge traditional business elites in Hong Kong, he has not introduced any radical policy changes in his political program.The proposed policies on land and housing—including increasing land and social housing supply as well as regulating dealing practices, do not differ significantly from what the previous administration is pursuing.Therefore, Knight Frank expects mild price corrections of less than 10% in luxury properties and less than 15% in mass residential in the coming 12 months. Mr Thomas Lam Ho Man, Head of Research at Knight Frank in Greater China, said, “Some people, mainly from the business sectors, are wary that a possible end to the traditional non-interventionist policies may lead to a major correction in the property market on a scale similar to that occurred in 1997. However, we believe a slump in general property prices is unlikely.”
The owner of JBs Lounge invited 4N to conceptualize his venue’s intense audio and visual effects into a fantastic experience, making sure it would attract the chic, the famous and the beautiful.To create a stand-out night club in the Central District (Lan Kwai Fong), where more than 100 bars and clubs vie for attention from the area’s local and international clientele, required 4N to deliver a lavish and sensual experience that could allow guests to suspend belief and forget, for a time, life outside the walls.The spacey, white interior features a ceiling, filled entirely with slender filament strategically lowered to just the tip of a an outstretched hand, with concealed LED lighting synchronized to the music, extending the effect into a vertigo-inducing and seriously fun journey. The VIP area is defined by a huge mirror-and-cr ystal façade, a luxurious space ideal for hosting chic private parties. More information at www.4N.com.hk.
Benoy wins Masterplan in Shanghai Benoy has announced success at the international urban design competition for the Lujiazui Pudong Qiantan ES4 Precinct Core Area, located in the south of Shanghai.

The population of the rapidly growing city in the east of China is expected to jump sharply by 17% over the next 10 years. The city, which boasted a population of 19.2 million at the end of 2010, is on course to have 21.4 million residents by 2015 and some 22.5 million by 2020. Given Shanghai’s rapid urbanization, the strategically positioned Qiantan ES4 Precinct will be the third central business district of Shanghai. The location will serve as a major public transport interchange and a waterfront entertainment destination. Ian Hau, Urban Designer at Benoy said, “The Benoy Masterplan put forward a vision to create Shanghai’s premier business address, residential community, transportation nexus and lifestyle destination for Shanghai - a precinct that will be unique in its quality and sense of place.The concept incorporates an Urban Design framework for infrastructure, planning and design that will deliver an attractive place for workers, residents, and tourists.” More information at www.benoy.com.

Successful conclusion to region’s most vibrant built industries fair
The recently concluded ARCHIDEX 2012 (13th International Architecture, Interior Design & Building Exhibition) and the inaugural co-located exhibition, ECO-B (1st Malaysia Eco Building & Design Exhibition) held in July at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia was for an action-packed week, the global stage for the architecture, interior design and building industries.

Perhaps no PTMA project has been more awarded or notable than the Portofino development in Shenzhen. The internationally acclaimed residential project is built around a uniquely designed Italian Piazza landscape. The habitat is situated around lake front property and includes cafes restaurants and bars that are open to the public, something quite different to the norm of private gated estates normally found throughout China. Portofino has attracted attention from architects and developers from all over the region and has become a shining example of the possibilities existing within modern Chinese development. Through the incorporation of an urban village feel, this project is said to have changed the historically stagnant pattern of Chinese developments, forever. In lieu of a history of innovation PTMA has been awarded with a variety of industry honours and awards. Notable awards include, but are not limited to: Prize for Excellence in Residential Planning for Cote D’Azure, Golden Prize of “Ecology International Garden Estates” for Portofino, and Comprehensive bonus of “2003 Classic Demonstration Building of Chines Residence” for Wildflower Residential Project. Additionally PTMA has received numerous awards for Vanke Village, Misty Mountain (Shenzhen), Xiyuen Garden (Shenzhen), Golden Coast (Hangzhou), CITIC Mangrove Bay, CITIC Lake District, China Resource Oriental Xanadu and many others.

of a project on the mainland. Located in Tianjin, China, the uniquely designed open air TEDA Stadium holds over 37,000 spectators and is home to Tianjin Teda Football Club. In concert with their Melbourne office, PTMA completed this project which has since become a crown jewel of the Tianjin Economic Development Area. As recognition for their work on this project, PTMA is honoured to have received the Lu Ban Award, China’s top building awards, and the Zhan Tian You Award. Peddle Thorp Architects in Melbourne are proud to have been involved in the revitalization of Scots’ Church. Since its construction in 1835, Scots’ Church has been a notable architectural landmark in Melbourne.When completed, the expanded complex included a new six star rated building. This rating is the highest achievable mark in the Australian Green Star Rating system.The original gothic style church is made of sandstone and limestone. The designers of the new building complex continued that palate by using sandstone cladding in its lobby and exterior. In order to achieve such an impressive environmental standard, high-performance glass, copper in colour was incorporated. The copper film applied to clear glass is highly transparent, allowing good daily light and providing a thermal shield in summer. In response to varied sunlight intensity, the double-glazed glass turns various copper colours; in the morning, it will be more reflective than in the afternoon. With design offices from Melbourne to Qatar and an amazing variety of projects completed throughout the world, PTMA as part of the Peddle Thorp Group has the ability to carry out original designs anywhere. On multiple occasions, Peddle Thorp Architects have designed interiors that have become major corporations’ benchmarked design standards. Two such companies that have incorporated aspects of Peddle Thorp’s designs into their international design benchmark are Hewlett-Packard and General Electric. Additionally, the practice has completed a wide variety of sporting venues throughout the world. For example, Peddle Thorp Architects designed five mixed-use stadiums, originally completed for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.The practice has become a prominent designer of world-class aquatic centres and completed projects include Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSEC) and Australian Tennis Open Stadium, Melbourne Park. Moreover, PTMA has completed prominent projects in the retail and banking sectors and is currently harnessing their international expertise to help Tiffany and Company, the world renowned jeweller, establish their retail brand presence in China. Additional projects include the Myers Retail Centre in Melbourne, and an office tower banking headquarters in Fuzhou NAME OF PROPERTY.When hiring PTMA, clients are truly able to embrace the future while living in the practical present. With Peddle Thorp, forward thought and modern design are not merely objectives, but rather intrinsic qualities in their day-to-day operation. For example, PTMA showed commitment to issues of sustainability, long before it was the current industry buzz-word, by designing the first LEED rated building in all of China - Fraser Place Shekou in Shenzhen. PTMA believes that sustainability is a part of good design. Strong design practices lead to the natural development of sustainable spaces. As both PTMA and the Peddle Thorp Group at large have expanded throughout the world, it is their goal to also help their existing Chinese clients expand into new international markets. Using PTMA’s international network, clients can rely on their experience and local contacts when beginning expansion into new markets, and yet have the comfort of knowing that the firm understands the unique aspirations of a Chinese developer. Peddle Thorp Melbourne Asia and its vast base of architects, has a strong belief that design is a collaborative process between client and architect; a process which aims to articulate their client’s aspirations, strategies and values. PTMA has subsisted on the values of pre-eminent, practical and efficient design works.Through an established reputation, cultivated through a consistent dedication to technical reliability, superior resources, advanced computer skills and unique design, Peddle Thorp has been specializing in regional planning and ground-breaking design throughout their history. PTMA has been able to help clients create sustainable and financially viable architectural solutions throughout the mainland. The firm is truly both leader and a dynamic force in the development of contemporary Chinese architecture. PTMA’s roots in the developing country of China also allow it to transpose this property development intelligence into other developing countries in the region. PTMA is increasingly implementing projects in Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and India.With its strong understanding of creating successful landmark projects in developing nations, in concert with a wealth of International design expertise in all building sectors, the future for PTMA in the Asian region is assured.

展現當代國內建築的發展動力 澳大利亞柏濤(墨爾本)建築設計亞洲公司 (下稱 「柏濤亞洲」) 的建築師通過形形色色的項目 和專注於創新的獨特作風，把自己定性為地區 內突破性建築設計的主要推動者。
澳大利亞柏濤建築設計有限公司(下稱「柏濤」)成立於1890年，一直是澳大利亞歷史上最大 的建築設計公司之一。過去逾一百二十多年來，柏濤一直走在設計創新的前列。 柏濤亞洲於15年前在中國深圳成立，乃扎根於墨爾本的柏濤建築的亞洲公司。柏濤亞洲是柏 濤建築設計集團下設的一部分，是為續以柏濤的名字協作經營的獨立建築設計公司。
透過以國際建築設計公司名義在中國發展15年的經驗，柏濤亞洲如今已發展成中國最大的外 資建築設計公司，並已經在上海和北京設立分公司，亦已經在中國26個不同的省份完成了400 多個項目。中國分公司的建築設計隊伍包容中外的建築師，對中國的房地產市場瞭如指掌，素質之高無可比擬。 柏濤亞洲最初利用眾多世界級住宅和總體規劃項目在中國綻放其品牌實力，然後不斷通過龐大的現有技術資源基礎與公 司國際級的專業知識和豐富經驗繼續發展，如今項目類別已擴展至商業、零售、衛生、體育和酒店款待等多個行業。 在柏濤亞洲的一眾項目內，也許沒有一個比深圳華僑城的波托菲諾純水岸發展項目贏得更多獎項和獲取更多贊譽。這個國 際知名的住宅項目有著圍繞意大利廣場景觀的獨特設計。住處位於湖濱，周邊還包括對外開放的咖啡店、餐廳和酒吧，有 別於中國常見的私人屋苑設計規範安排。此項目吸引了區內建築師和開發商的眼球，是現代中國發展項目的一個輝煌榜 樣。通過納入城中鄉村的感覺，波托菲諾純水岸發展項目被譽為徹底改革中國項目發展歷史上停滯不前的模式。 他們亦憑藉創新的設計，獲得業內多個榮譽和獎項。其中著名的獎項包括深圳．蔚藍海岸項目的「國際住宅與建築科技 展覽會『居住社區優秀規劃設計獎』」、深圳．波托菲諾純水岸項目的「聯合國環境規劃署與國際公園協會『國際花園 社區生態獎金獎』」，和深圳香蜜湖水榭花都項目的「中國建設部『2003中國住宅經典示範樓盤綜合大獎金獎』」。 此外，柏濤亞洲的獲獎項目還包括深圳萬科城市花園、深圳雲深處、深圳熙園、杭州金色海岸、中信紅樹灣、中信山語 湖、李寧體育公園及華潤大連星海灣一號等等。 柏濤的精髓在於這麼多年來都能夠以本地化的力量和有效的服務素質善待客戶。為了達到交付一貫鼓舞且創新的項目的 目標，柏濤正致力於視客戶為工作團隊的一部分。公司的目標就是要成為當地文化和願景的專家，卻依然有足夠能力展 現更廣泛的全球視野。 自成立亞洲分公司以來，柏濤亞洲已在中國多項比賽中勝出，包括深圳國際網球中心、深圳．蔚藍海岸住宅項目、龍崗 國際展覽中心和深圳香蜜湖水榭花都住宅項目。就深圳．萬科城市花園的設計，柏濤亞洲的深圳公司取得建設工程的最 高獎：中國建設部住宅設計一等獎(1999)。深圳．萬科城市花園於1999年竣工，為深圳的住宅設計樹立新基準，是雲 雲項目中令柏濤亞洲佔據更強大市場優勢和品質與獨創性聲譽的其中一個。 在包括澳大利亞、亞洲、中東和印度等多個地區成立穩健的分公司以後，柏濤建築設計集團自有能力號召來自世界各地 的專家一同打造項目。另外，柏濤亞洲又與國際分公司合作，盡力在亞洲地區提供廣泛的國際專業知識。

談到把國際設計經驗充分利用於中國大陸項目上，柏濤亞洲絕對有足夠的能力，而其泰達體育場項目就樹立了一個閃亮 的榜樣。泰達體育場項目坐落於中國天津，在2002年建成，並於2004年對外開放，具有露天空間的獨特設計，可招待 超過37,000名觀眾，是天津泰達足球會的第二個家。該項目是由柏濤亞洲聯同其墨爾本辦公室共同建築設計的，建成 以來便被譽為天津經濟技術開發區的掌上明珠。柏濤亞洲在此項目上的努力也得到認同，有幸能夠獲得中國首屈一指建 築獎的「魯班獎」，以及中國土木工程最大獎項「詹天佑獎」。 另一方面，身處墨爾本的柏濤建築師也因為能夠參與蘇格蘭教堂的重建再生計劃而感到自豪。蘇格蘭教堂始建於1835 年，是墨爾本首屈一指的標誌性建築。重建竣工時，擴展的部分包含了一個新的六星級建築物。整個建築在澳大利亞的 綠色星級評分系統中取得歷來最高的分數。原來的哥特式教堂設計由砂岩和石灰岩建築而成，新樓群的設計延續一貫風 格，同樣利用砂岩熔覆其大堂和外牆；而為了達到令人欣羡的環保標準，新設計用上高性能銅色玻璃，當中用於透明玻 璃的銅膜是高度透明的，好讓充沛的日照作天然光，與此同時又為炎夏扮演抗熱的角色。該雙層玻璃在不同的陽光強度 下會漸變成各種各樣的銅色，而早晨的反射性比下午尤其強烈。 雖然柏濤亞洲只是柏濤建築設計集團的一部分，然而同樣有能力把原創設計帶到世界每一個角落。柏濤亞洲的設計分公 司由墨爾本延展至卡塔爾，完成的項目更遍布世界各地。在多個項目上，柏濤的建築師所打造的室內設計都能成為大型 企業集團的國際設計基準，當中兩家名字包括惠普和通用電氣。 此外，柏濤在世界不同地點也完成了各式各樣的體育場館建築設計。例如柏濤建築為五個原定於新德裡2010英聯邦運 動會使用的多用途體育場館作建築設計，同時也是世界一流的水上運動中心的著名設計公司，完成的項目包括墨爾本體 育和水上運動中心及墨爾本公園的澳洲網球公開賽球場。 除此以外，柏濤亞洲在零售和銀行業方面亦剛好完成了不少傑出的項目，而目前更正在利用其國際專業知識，協助世界著 名珠寶商蒂芙尼公司在中國建立零售品牌地位。其他項目包括位於墨爾本的邁爾斯零售中心和(物業名稱)位於福州的銀行 總部辦公塔樓。柏濤亞洲之所以能令客戶安於現存生活，擁抱未來時光，是因為柏濤認為前瞻性的思想和現代的設計不僅 僅是一個目標，而是日常運作中的內在必然素質。例如，柏濤亞洲在可持續發展成為潮流用詞的很久以前，已致力於正視 有關問題，並在深圳設計了全中國首個獲得領先能源與環境設計 (LEED) 認證的建築物 – 深圳蛇口泰格國際公寓。 他們認為，可持續發展是優質設計的一部分，實力雄厚的建築事務所是有能力讓可持續發展空間自然發展的。 柏濤亞洲和柏濤建築設計集團不斷於世界延展業務的同時，也訂下目標協助它們的現有中國客戶擴展到新的國際市場。 客戶在進入新市場發展業務時，不但可以憑藉柏濤亞洲的國際業務網絡和依靠它們的經驗和地區聯繫信息，而且還可體 會到柏濤亞洲瞭解中國房地產開發商的獨有願景。 柏濤亞洲和其一眾建築師堅信設計是客戶和建築師之間的協作過程，旨在以卓越、務實和高效的設計作品價值持續經營， 闡明客戶的願景、戰略和價值觀。柏濤也通過對技術可靠性、卓越資源、先進計算機技術和獨特設計的持久栽培奉獻而建 立了良好聲譽，從而在其成立的歷史長河中，體現其地區性規劃和突破性設計的獨當一面地位。
同時，柏濤亞洲已經能夠在整個中國大陸協助客戶創造可持續發展和經濟可行的建築方案，絕對是當代中國建築發展的 先導和動力。 柏濤亞洲在發展中國家如中國所盤踞的房地產慧根，可以延伸至其他發展中國家 地區。柏濤亞洲刻下在馬來西亞、柬埔寨、越南、泰國、香港、印度尼西亞、巴 布亞新幾內亞和印度陸續開展項目。憑藉在已發展國家成功創造標誌性項目的深 刻理解，和對所有牽涉建築的行業的豐富國際設計知識與經驗，柏濤亞洲在亞洲 地區的光輝未來可謂不言而喻。

The pioneer of Hong Kong Green Building Zero Carbon Building 零碳天地
Over the past few years, throughout the world, unease over the future of our climate and the depletion of natural resources have become pervasive cultural concerns.
Well before this societal fascination, the management at Ronald Lu and Partners (RLP) made a critical investment in the area of sustainability, when they decided to become the first architectural practice in Hong Kong to appoint a dedicated director to oversee sustainable design aspects and develop a studio devoted implicitly to the cause. The post was originally taken up by Mr KS Wong (now Hong Kong Secretary for the Environment), and had the charge of infusing their business with well-researched, environmentally savvy design practices. This investment, of both talent and resources, was rewarded decisively at the Green Building Awards 2012.The firm was recognized for the achievements of 10 unique projects: 6 Finalists, 2 Merit Award Winners and most notably, 2 Grand Award Winners. RLP’s new Director of Sustainable Design, Mr MK Leung, currently leads the highly specialised team responsible for the green building design of the firm. Equipped with a vast bank of experience in sustainable design, the team has worked on a variety of projects, which prepared them for this undertaking, including, the pioneering sustainability master plan of Science Park Phase III as well as West Kowloon Cultural District. In addition to the formation of this team, RLP also created a “Sustainability Steering Committee”. The aim of this committee was to improve the understanding of green issues and create strong awareness in their staff. It is interesting to note that all this was happening at RLP years before Hong Kong had even founded its Green Building Council. Perhaps the most remarkable of this year’s Grand Prize winners is Zero Carbon Building (ZCB), which will open soon in Kowloon Bay. Inhabited by an exhibition and education area, eco-office, eco-home and multipurpose space, ZCB will serve as a shining example that zero carbon construction is achievable in Hong Kong’s harsh subtropical climate. Text: Jeff Gross Images: RLP 翻譯: Richard Lee
After careful implementation, the designers at RLP estimate their new building to be 45 per cent more efficient than current standard design. Through careful implementation of passive design practices, ZCB has the lofty yet realistic goal of not only being carbon free, but also energy positive.This goal was achieved through a variety of implementations. Specifically, the building was orientated, minimizing east and west exposure – a design element that will aid the building in capturing a maximum amount of wind. Also, the building was shaped in a way that it is able to utilize an appropriate amount of daylight, while capturing sunlight on the solar panel lined roof. The building is sloping, which creates thermal buoyancy of stack affect, allowing air to move upward quite easily, aiding ventilation. ZCB is covered in a large number of high performance glazed windows. In Hong Kong the statutory limit of Overall Thermal Transfer Value (OTTV) is 56 watts per square meter. Through careful implementation of passive design, the team at RLP was able to achieve a number 80 per cent lower than the limit. MK Leung explains how this building can be an example for the construction industry, “Certainly, the typology can not be perfectly copied; however we believe the process and methodology is the key and can be used anywhere. Shaping the building in such a way, orientating it properly, making it permeable to wind…etc.” Additionally, ZCB inventively makes use of high temperature air conditioning, under floor displacement cooling and chill beam technology. Notably, ZCB is the first building of scale in Hong Kong to utilize Bio-fuel Trigeneration; a process that turns waste into energy.The energy harnessed through this process will be used to create electricity, heat and cooling.
Zero Carbon Building 零碳天地
Also honoured with The Grand Award was RLP’s work on the Siu Sai Wan Complex in Chai Wan.The facility is comprised of a 1,000 seat multi-purpose arena, two indoor swimming pools, a library, a table tennis centre, a children’s playroom and a 450-seat community hall. All designed under a careful green ideal, the new facility provides leisure and cultural space to service the community for years to come. The open and polymorphic form of Siu Sai Wan Complex encourages public interaction, while minimizing energy consumption.The most striking feature of the new building is an atrium, designed as a “vertical street”.To achieve the intrepid design, the architects at RLP incorporated balconies, platforms, bridges, stairs and escalators working in concert, at various levels of the complex.Additionally, the building was constructed with its neighbours in mind; despite the size and scope of the project, care was taken to ensure the centre did not block natural airflow toward the school and development it borders. Siu Sai Wan Complex features a variety of environmental particulars: frosted glass skylight, light colour facade materials, day-light lit and naturally ventilated central atrium, and sun-shaded operable screens with insulated Low-E Glass. Additionally, the structure includes a green roof, which is irrigated with grey water and an ultramodern rainwater recycling system. Receiving Merit Awards were SK Yee Healthy Life Centre and Academic 3 City University of Hong Kong. Located on one of the existing roofs of Tuen Mun Hospital Complex, SK Yee Healthy Life Centre generates an environment of healing; creating a garden and playground to a once barren hospital roof. Featuring counselling space installed with green roofs and walls, the hospital extension seeks to promote healthy living and environmentally inspired indoor space. The pavilion-like shelters allow a constant interplay between indoor and
outdoor spaces, turning counselling space into healing gardens for adults and playgrounds for children. Also recognized with a Merit Award was The City University of Hong Kong’s new teaching and administrative building. The building project featured a new tower, a level green deck across the sloping site, activating a circulation space and a cleverly embedded sustainable design creating an iconic view including Lion Rock.The new building, on Tat Chee Avenue, has given the University a trademark new space for students and staff, vastly improved public amenities and provides the university with previously absent green space. RLP also received Finalist Honours at this year’s Green Building Awards for their involvement with the following projects: Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department New Headquarters (Lantau), Tung Chung Swimming Pool (Lantau), Opus Hong Kong (The Peak), Blue Pool Road Residential Project (Happy Valley),The Riverpark (Shatin), and China Resource Building (Wan Chai). MK Leung summarized RLP’s sustainable design mission, “We are very conscious of how our projects can better contribute to their surrounding environment. And we strive to design people-oriented high performance buildings for Hong Kong to benefit our clients as well as end-users, the neighbourhoods and the public at large.” For more information on Ronald Lu and Partners, please consult their website: www.rlphk.com

在過去數年間，全球各地對氣候變化和天然資源的消耗均展開了密切關注。 建築物總熱傳值為每平方米56瓦特，經過一系列如適當座向、外遮陽及採用高性能玻璃窗 系統等精心設計後，團隊成功把零碳天地的熱傳值降至比法定標準還要低80%。 梁文傑先生認為零碳天地可成為建築業界新的典範，他說：「設計上當然不能一式一樣， 不過我們相信建築過程與方法才是關鍵，例如建築物的外形、座向、透風等等的考量，可 應用到其他建築項目上。」
呂元祥建築師事務所的余兆麒健康生活中心和香港城市大學學術樓（三）兩個項目皆獲得 優異獎。余兆麒健康生活中心建於屯門醫院綜合大樓的屋頂上，把本來荒廢的空間活化成 花園和遊樂場，營造出一個復康環境。裝上綠化屋頂和牆壁的健康生活中心提供輔導空 間，旨在推廣健康生活和室內的綠化環境。庭院般的健康生活中心能推動室內和室外空 間的互動，讓輔導空間搖身一變成為大人的復康花園和小朋友的遊樂場。
此外，零碳天地配備其獨具匠心的高溫空調系統，以及地板送風和冷管技術。值得注意的 是，零碳天地是全港首棟具規模的建築物利用生物柴油三聯供機組把廢物轉換成能源，用 在供電、加熱和冷卻系統。
香港城市大學的新教學及行政大樓同樣獲得優異獎。建設項目包括一棟新的高樓、位於 斜坡的綠化平台、流通空間，以及一個飽覽獅子山的綠色地標性景觀。坐落在達之路的 新大樓為教員及學生提供一個新的標誌性空間，改善了公共設施，並為大學提供以前缺 乏的綠色空間。
呂元祥建築師事務所另一榮獲大獎的是位處柴灣的小西灣綜合大樓，整個建設由一個1000 座位的多用途場館、兩個室內游泳池、圖書館、乒乓球中心、兒童遊戲室和一個450座位的 社區會堂組成。整個設計以綠色理念為本，為區內民眾提供文娛及康樂空間。
呂元祥建築師事務所在2012年度環保建築大獎其餘入圍的作品包括： 香 港 民 航 處 新 總 部 （ 大 嶼 山 ） 、 東 涌 游 泳 池 （ 大 嶼 山 ） 、 O p u s H o n g Ko n g （山頂）、藍塘道住宅項目（跑馬地）、溱岸8號（沙田）及華潤大廈（灣仔）。
綜合大樓開放和多形態的設計，不但鼓勵公眾的參與，同時亦大大減少能源消耗。大樓 最巧妙的是其作為直立街的中庭，這大膽的設計揉合了陽台、平台、橋樑、樓梯和扶手 電梯，在大樓的各層互相呼應。此外，雖然建築物體量龐大，在設計過程中也有考慮到 毗鄰的學校及其他建築物，盡量避免阻擋它們的自然風。
梁文傑先生概括了呂元祥建築師事務所環保設計的宗旨：「我們非常關心我們的建築項 目對環境作出的貢獻，致力設計更多以人為本的高性能建築物，讓我們齊心關心我們的 社區以及大眾。」
小西灣綜合大樓運用了一系列環保設計：磨砂玻璃天窗，淺色外觀物料，自然照明及自 然通風的中庭，及配備了中空低輻射玻璃的遮蔭屏幕。此外，綠化屋頂由中水和現代化 的雨水回收系統灌溉。

Green 18 is an eight-storey, environmentally-friendly and operationally efficient building located at Hong Kong Science Park that has been purposefully designed to showcase green technologies and sustainable building practices that will be applied to other buildings in Hong Kong as the city seeks to reduce its carbon footprint into the future.
Built on a pristine 22-hectacre site on the Tolo Harbour waterfront in Hong Kong’s northeast New Territories, the Hong Kong Science Park development was commissioned in 1999 by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government and provides 20 state-of-the-art laboratory-fitted buildings offering 220,000 square metres of office space as well as fully equipped laboratories and engineering services. Green 18 is the last building to be developed in Phase 2 of Hong Kong Science Park. Designed by Hong Kong architects, Simon Kwan & Associates, under the theme “Office in the Park”, Green 18 reaches out to science and technology, whilst embracing nature at the same time. Green 18 also carries the important mission of acting as a prototype for Hong Kong Science Park’s Phase 3 development. “Green 18 attained HK BEAM Platinum grading,” stated Simon Kwan & Associates Director, Micheal Yam. “The building received full marks for innovation and is only the second local project that has gained all credits in this category, with notable features including its operable glass louvers, interactive display booths, Building Information Modelling (BIM) from design to handover, Heliostat system, and solar light pipes with a sun-tracking device.”
Towards Zero Carbon The Green 18 building system was chosen to reduce overall energy loading and to enable the building to harvest renewable resources. A hybrid ventilation system was adopted consisting of three operating modes based on different outdoor conditions, namely natural ventilation, free cooling and air-conditioning modes. A 5.5kw Vertical Axis Wind Turbine was also installed on the roof of the building to provide on-grid electricity for power and lighting. The introduction of a solar light pipe transmits high quality sunlight while screening out ultraviolet rays.With a sun tracking function at the receiver end, collected sunlight passes through optical fibers to the illuminator located at the basement corridor.The warmth of natural daylight brightens otherwise long, dark passageways. A solar hot water heating system is provided via evacuated tube solar collectors installed on the roof of the building to absorb thermal energy from the sun and convert it into usable heat.
The penetration of natural and warming daylight into the building’s interior through the introduction of the Heliostat system enlivens the living environment at the heart of the building and positively adding to the overall working spirit and productivity of the building’s occupants.
In summer, hybrid ventilation is provided by a chimney effect created in the gap between façade skins, allowing hot air to rise and exit the interior of ethe building.The air gap acts as a buffer, reducing the requirement for air-conditioning in the offices and improves the thermal comfort throughout the perimeter zone.
“Green 18 was developed as a Research & Development office building incorporating a number of green and sustainable features,” says Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation Executive Project Manager (Planning and Design),Wilson Yau.“The installation of various systems making use of renewable resources complements the overall theme of the building and simultaneously serves to promote the application of renewable energy technologies to the general public.”
And while some air-conditioning is required in the atrium, requirements are low due to the design of the façade.With all operable louvers and windows closed, hot air is generally reflected off the outer façade skin of the building. Operable glass louvers are also provided on the majority of the northwestern and southwestern facades with highest solar heat gain.This additional layer of façade creates a gap between the louvers and the IGU curtain wall, forming a buffer to reduce solar heat gain in summer, thus further reducing energy consumption in the office areas.
Bioclimatic & Landscape Features Waste Management Promoting the theme “Office in the Park”, Green 18 incorporates landscaping within the building itself and the interweaving of landscape and communal elements throughout the building. Purpose built landscaped gardens located on the roof, 7/F and 8/F, together with an atrium, are provided to further enhance building users’ interaction with nature.The introduction of “Green Fingers” also encourages and promotes small-scale urban farming by office users at the garden beds provided on each of these levels. The ”Office in the Park” theme is further promoted through the inclusion of a green lobby, green wall at the entrance of the Green Concept exhibition area, a water feature visually extending from the exterior to the interior lobby, which also enhances the microclimate, sloped landscaping planted with lush greenery at the building’s exterior and extending into the building interior, and the lobby which is naturally ventilated enabling optimal climatic conditions. Sensitive boundary treatment also promotes the building to the public, while the absence of solid fencing eliminates feelings of isolation for occupants.The first line of building security is glass doors enclosing the lobby interior, while a second line of defense is created at the controlled lift lobby via security gates.

An existing and extensive Automatic Refuse Collection System (ARCS) system is provided for use by the buildings in Phase 1 and Phase 2.The ARCS for Green 18 will be connected to the central system of ARCS. ARCS is for collection, sorting and disposal of recycled paper and general waste from the offices and an ARCS room is located at the building core of each floor, in which hoppers and chutes are provided. The hoppers and chutes are connected to the refuse conveyance pipe under basement floor slab and lead to the separate refuse containers for the two different wastes provided at the refuse collection station of the existing system. When the refuse container is 80% full, a cleaning contractor will arrange collection and disposal. Green 18 carries the important mission of serving as a prototype for HKSP’s Phase 3 development.This will incorporate the latest green technologies, sustainable building design and management practices with a net zero carbon target. Phase 3 will be a showcase for implementing sustainable practices in Hong Kong and it will act as the catalyst to develop Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta Region as the regional hub for green technology.

綠景樓 啟動香港建築可持續發展的未來 建於香港新界東北部，吐露港海旁一塊面積22公頃的土地上，香港科技園公司在1999年 接受香港特別行政區政府的委託，在科學園第一、二期建20棟頂尖及專為研發工作而設 的辦公室大樓，共提供220,000平方米的辦公室用地，以及多個設備完善的實驗室和園 區設施。
綠景樓是是科學園第二期規劃中最後一棟落成的建築物；由香港本土建築師關善明建築 師事務所 (Simon Kwan & Associates) 設計，以「園裡的辦公室」為主題，綠景樓的設 計不但著眼科技，同時也擁抱大自然，更肩負著一個重要任務，就是為科學園第三期勾 劃出發展大綱。
香港科技園公司項目及設施副總裁呂守信先生表示：「綠景樓是一座糅合多項綠化和可持 續發展特色的科研及發展辦公大樓。安裝多個有效利用再生能源系統，呼應大樓的設計主 題，同時可以向大眾推廣可再生能源的應用。」 其中值得留意的是可開合式玻璃百葉幕牆、太陽光反射及導入系統、展示由設計至落成的 建築資訊建模，以及一系列作公眾教育用途的互動展示區。 自然溫暖的日光透過日光反射系統滲透到綠景樓內部，令樓內中心部份的環境活躍起來， 且為辦公室員工的生產力和整體工作士氣帶來正面影響。
精心設計的園林花園位於大樓的地面樓層和最高兩層，連同中庭，進一步加強大樓使用者 和大自然的互動關係。引入「綠色手指」的概念，積極鼓勵和推廣辦公室員工在各層的花 園田地上進行小型都市耕種。 在綠景樓綠色概念展覽區的入口，可以進一步體驗「園裡的辦公室」主題，透過流水、 綠化的大堂和牆壁，在視覺上由戶外延伸至室內大堂的設計，有效調節微氣候．觀景斜 坡上裁種綠油蔥郁的植物，一直由大樓的外面延伸到建築內部，而大堂亦是利用自然通 風來調節最合適的氣溫。 細心的外圍設計亦有助將建築物帶到大眾面前，沒有堅實的圍牆，可以減低大樓和公眾 的隔閡。大樓第一道保安防線是大堂內部的玻璃門，而第二道防線則是透過保安閘門控 制的電梯大堂。
香港一直尋求減少碳排放的方法，而香港科學園的 設計，是以展示綠色科技和可持續發展、及可應用 於香港其他建築的做法為目的。園內新建成八層高 的綠景樓，是一棟既環保、且具高度營運效益的模 範建築物。
為了減少整體能源負荷和利用可再生能源，故選用了現時的大樓系統─混合式通風系統， 結合了三種操作模式，可以根據各種戶外條件調節模式，包括自然通風、自然冷卻和空調 模式。綠景樓天台亦安裝了一個5.5千瓦的立軸風力機，為大樓電網提供電力和照明。 引進太陽光導入系統，有效將陽光引入室內的同時，亦阻隔了紫外線。在接收一端裝有 太陽追蹤功能，收集的陽光會經光纖到達地下走廊的照明器。自然溫暖的日光照亮了長 而暗的行人通道。天台的真空管太陽能集熱器為太陽能熱水系統收集太陽能，再轉換為 可用熱能。
現時在第一期和第二期實行的中央自動垃圾收集系統 (ARCS) 將會與綠景樓的 ARCS 連接。ARCS 是指將來自辦公室的再造紙和一般廢物進行收集、整理和棄置。而在大樓核 心的每一層都設有一間 ARCS 室，備有料斗和運送廢物的導槽。
在夏季，混合式通風系統在外牆之間的間隙形成煙囪效應，讓熱空氣上升和離開大樓 內部。這道空氣間隙成為一個緩衝區，降低辦公室空調的用量，改善整個周邊環境的熱 舒適度。 至於中庭所需的空調，亦因為外牆的設計而相應調低。當所有可操作的百葉窗和窗戶關 上，熱空氣會在大樓外牆反射離開。而這些可操作的玻璃百葉窗皆安裝在大樓的西北和 西南外牆這兩面接收最多太陽能的位置。於大樓額外加建一層活動百葉幕牆外牆，可以 形成在百葉窗和隔熱玻璃幕牆的間隙，有效減少太陽能吸收，進一步減少辦公室範圍的 能源消耗。
料斗和導槽連接到底層地板下的垃圾輸送管，送到現有系統的廢物收集站內專門裝載兩種 不同廢物的獨立垃圾箱。當垃圾箱達八成滿，清潔承辦商便會安排收集和處置垃圾。 綠景樓肩負為科學園第三期勾劃出發展大綱的重要任務。大樓結合了最新的環保科技、可 持續發展的建築設計和管理模式，務求達至零碳排放。科學園第三期將會是一個本地實行 可持續措施的重要展示地，它將會加速香港和珠三角地區發展 成為綠色科技的地區樞紐。

Green Building Award 2012 Acknowledging those dedicated to a greener built future 環保建築大獎2012
致力推動綠色建設未來 The award presentation ceremony of Green Building Award 2012 (GBA 2012) was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in June, during which winners were announced and awarded. 2012年度的環保建築大獎頒獎禮於6月在香港會議展覽中心舉行，當晚 宣佈及頒發了多個獎項，表揚一眾環保建築。
GBA 2012 is a biennial award program organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) with the Professional Green Building Council (PGBC). GBA 2012 aims to provide recognition to building related projects with outstanding performance and contributions in sustainability and the environment and also to transform the mainstream market towards wider adoption of sustainable planning, design, construction, maintenance, renovation and revitalization of buildings. Message from the Guest of Honour, Mrs. Carrie LAM, GBS, JP, Former Secretary for Development, HKSAR Government. I offer my warmest congratulations to the Hong Kong Green Building Council and the Professional Green Building Council, for jointly organising the biennial Green Building Award 2012. Buildings in Hong Kong are consuming 90 per cent of the city’s total electricity.To reduce energy consumption and the resulting carbon emission, prompt action must be taken to optimise building designs. To this end, we have been encouraging the construction industry to adopt innovative and creative solutions and incorporate “green elements” in all phases and facets of projects – from green building design to low carbon construction, and from effective procurement to user-friendly management. The goal of these solutions should be to incorporate measures that maximise sustainability, while at the same time minimise negative impact of the building on the community throughout its life-span. I am pleased to note that the Green Building Award 2012 has underlined the importance of sustainability in the full life-cycle of a building by giving due recognition to the contribution of different professional sectors of the construction industry for their distinguished work in this aspect. I am sure the Award will help boost the contribution of all industry players to sustainable development. May I congratulate all award-winners on your devotion and professionalism, and wish this event a great success. 每兩年一度，由香港綠色建築議會及環保建築專業議會舉辦的環保建築大獎2012，旨 在表揚那些在環保及可持續發展方面，具有出色表現和貢獻的建築物及相關項目。從 而帶動主流市場邁向更廣泛採用可持續發展的規劃、設計、施工、維修、翻新及重建的 建築物。 以下是大獎主禮嘉賓前發展局局長林鄭月娥女士的致辭。

1) CIC Zero Carbon Building ZCB – New Building Category – Grand ZCB 零碳天地 – 新建建築類別 – 大獎 In light of the construction industry having a significant role to play in GHG emission reduction, Construction Industry Council (CIC) has developed the first ZeroCarbon Building (ZCB) in Hong Kong. ZCB is a showcase for the approach and implementation of green building, demonstrating eco-building design and technology. Surrounded by over 200 trees, ZCB is a ‘Green Oasis’, a catalyst to drive behavioural change. The purpose of the building is to exhibit, covering a number of concepts that can be practically implemented, including for example, zero carbon, sustainable water, zero waste, urban woodland. The energy is saved by various measures down to 86 kWh/m2/year: natural ventilation using wind catchers, high performance façade for solar shading, efficient high volume low speed ceiling fans, underfloor air delivery with radiant cooling.Thus some 75% more energy utilisation is achieved as compared with traditional approaches.
這棟佔地一點四公頃的零碳建築，正好展示了現時綠色建 築的方向和實施，把生態建築的概念和科技一一實踐。在 高人口密度的香港，這棟零碳建築簡直是一個城市綠洲， 一個推動城市習慣改變的催化劑。建築目的是為了展現如 何把不同概念應用在實際環境上，包括零排碳、水循環、 零廢棄及城市木林區。它通過不同的方式來減少能源，包 括使用集風口達到自然通風的效果，高性能建築立面來遮 光，低速高效能吊扇，地牢空氣傳送連輻射冷房系統。不 但如此，建築物更被超過二百棵樹木圍繞著。
2) Hong Kong Design Institute & HKIVE Lee Wai Lee Campus – New Building Category – Merit 香 港知專設計學院新校舍及遷建香港專業教育學院 (李惠利) – 新建建築類別 – 優異
With the design concept of “heaven-sky-earth”, the Hong Kong Design Institute & HKIVE Lee Wai Lee Campus raises the main bulk of the buildings up to the “sky” level (above 7/F) leaving ample open space at the “earth” level (at G/F and podium). Constructed of concrete, steel and glass, the evocative, light and transparent architecture is a
metaphor of a blank page containing various exchanges within the building as well as with the surroundings, all made possible through interaction among the building, users, public and the site neighbourhood which mutates throughout its lifespan. 香港知專設計學院及香港專業教育學院李惠利分校的設 計，運用了「天空與地面」的概念， 把建築物主要體積 的部分提升至「天空」水平(即7樓以上的位置)，為建築物 「地面」水平部分(即地面至平台的位置) 留下充裕的空 間。在7樓以下的開敞環境，不但提供大面積的設計園景和 公眾活動場地，更能把將軍澳的海濱地帶與位於校舍之後 的樓宇連接起來，兼作通風及觀景用途，使校舍建築與毗 鄰環境得以融和，創建可持續發展的建築環境。
3) Midfield Concourse Development – New Building Category – Merit 中場客運廊發展工程 – 新建建築類別 – 優異 Sustainability is an integral part of Hong Kong International Airport’s operations and development.A series of energy saving initiatives will be incorporated in the Midfield
Concourse contributing to an energy saving of over 20% compared with the Building Energy Code baseline. Highperformance glazing panels, daylight sensors, solar shading and north-facing skylights are used to maximise natural lighting and reduce solar heat gain.

1) Lone Pine Hotel – Commercial – Gold 孤松酒店，檳城 –商業組別 – 金獎 Established in 1948, Lone Pine Hotel is located on a beautiful stretch of beach in Batu Feringghi and is the only luxury boutique hotel in this area. The latest renovation consisted of the addition of two new blocks and the design was to create a intimate relationship between the hotel guest and nature. This is achieved by the conscious attempt to minimise the footprint of the new blocks, to ensure they are delicate insertions into the existing site. This has created a modern and contemporary retreat, whilst maintaining the nostalgia and character of Penang’s golden colonial era. 創立於1948年的孤松酒店座落在巴都丁宜美麗的沙灘上， 是這一帶唯一的豪華精品酒店。酒店最新擴建了兩棟大 樓，設計意念是希望讓住客與大自然有更親密的接觸。興 建過程盡量減少對環境的影響，以確保新的建築能不著痕 跡地融入本來的建設當中。這不但造就了一個現代避世好 去處，更保留了昔日檳城殖民時代繁華盛世的獨特個性。
2) Symphony Hills Office – Commercial – 商業組別 The program called for the provision of a office which would be readapted and converted into a community club facility for the surrounding residential developments. Contextually, the site lies in a valley formation sandwiched by strata low rise residential enclaves on both sides.

5) Administration Building – Commercial – Silver 行政大樓 – 商業組別 – 銀獎 An office space for 200 staff members, an energy-efficient and flexible building – the usual hallmarks of a modern and progressive work environment. What initially seemed unprogressive was the client’s request for the demolition of the existing offices and for the new building to sit on the cleared site. However, upon inspection of the site the designers realised that the original office building, a cluster of five blocks with steeply pitched pyramidal roofs and a Minangkabau roof as the entrance statement, had many serious problems, such as dimly lit and claustrophobic interiors and major water leakage, making the construction of an entirely new building desirable. 能容納二百員工的辦公室、節能和具彈性的大樓聽來只是 一般現代化和先進工作空間的要求，客戶最初要拆除現有 大樓，並在原址興建新大樓的要求看似過時，然而，經過 實地勘察後，設計師發現原來用上傾斜型金字塔屋頂的五 座辦公大樓，和有米南卡堡風格屋頂的正門入口都有許多嚴 重問題，包括燈光昏暗、室內裝潢幽暗和嚴重漏水問題，不 得不重新興建大樓。

Natural light pours into the centre of the ground floor via an original lightwell of typical traditional Asian shophouses, which transforms into a well of lights at dusk, the light is reflected from the hexagonal polished stainless steel mosaics now lining the lightwell’s double-height wall. 位於吉隆坡武吉免登對開綠葉長廊的 Bakita 讓你想起昔 日50年代懷舊的商店，店的兩側和21尺長的前院改建成 戶外酒吧。自然光由常見於亞洲商店的天井射到底層，而 黃昏時光線會再由牆上六角形不鏽鋼馬賽克反射出來，造 出不同的燈光效果。
4) House in 3 Movements, Singapore – Overseas – Silver / 新加坡 –海外 –銀獎 The strategy was to create a house in 3 cubic forms. The separate cubes or ‘movements’ are connected by bridges and linked by courtyards to heighten the distinct separations of the volumes. Effectively, there are 3 little houses within the house with light and views on all 4 sides of the form.The idea was to express each of the different functions of the house in a separate cube. In order to accentuate the character of each of the movements, timber cladding was used for the first cube, white smooth plaster for the second, and rough grey tones for the third.
專為一家渡假和朋友聚會而設的 Retreat House 座落彭 亨州珍達貝克村，佔地80940平方米，村內房屋盡融入自 然森林景觀之間。為突顯郊外生活和城市生活的分別，渡 假屋營造悠閒生活節奏，讓訪客置身於鬆弛神經的環境之 中，而房子更和附近的森林融為一體，讓居民享受大自然 之樂。最難得的是，每所房子的位置都能飽覽壯麗景色。
7) DNP Land Wing Tai Asia Alma Gallery Showroom / 龍鳳置地，永泰陳列室 –陳列室組別 An alteration and addition to an existing pair of semidetached shop-factory to be used as the sales and marketing gallery for the client, the gallery will house their new launches of their developments in Penang and their sales and marketing team. Materials for the exterior finishes were selected to match the interior creating a free flowing horizontal plane for the visitors on the ground floor. A vertical hanging garden was added to the façade providing the internal gallery a natural green filter and sun screen. A tropical garden added to the top floor will opened up to bring in a more natural and open feel. 新的銷售和營銷陳列室由半獨立的商店暨工廠改建而成， 將展示公司在檳城的新發展項目，以及作為銷售和營銷團 隊的大本營。外牆物料特別為親托室內裝潢而選，務求讓 訪客感覺自然。陳列室正面掛了植物，營造出空中花園的 感覺，為室內遮蔭和阻擋陽光。頂層的熱帶花園將為陳列 室帶來更自然和開揚的感覺。

2012 HKCRA Awards acknowledge repair leaders 2012混凝土維修卓越大獎 嘉許傑出表現 As Hong Kong’s construction industry embarks upon a new era of creativity and innovation, as issues such as heritage preservation and environmental considerations increasingly signal the difference between success and failure, Hong Kong Concrete Repair Association (HKCRA) recently celebrated their Annual Dinner and Awards 2012, acknowledging industry leaders in the area of concrete repairs. 香港建築業踏入創意革新紀元，當中文物保育及環境考量等因素日益重要，決定 每一項目的成敗。香港混凝土維修協會最近舉行2012年度週年晚宴暨頒獎禮，嘉 許混凝土維修業內優秀領袖。
Currently celebrating its sixth year, the HKCRA Awards For Excellence acknowledge best practices in relation to the application of concrete repairs.
The HKCRA congratulates each of the 2012 HKCRA Awards recipients and looks forward to increased participation in these Awards by industry-related organisations in 2013.
Also present at 2012 HKCRA Annual Dinner and Awards were distinguished guests, including HKSAR Buildings Department’s Ms.Wendy Leung, Business Environment Council Head - Environmental Management, Ms. Suzanne Cheung, Signatory Association Ltd. Chairman, Mr. Wong and University of Hong Kong Head of Structural Engineering and Hong Kong Concrete Institute President, Professor Albert Kwan.
Keynote speaker, HKSAR Buildings Department Senior Building Surveyor (Minor Works), Colin Cheng, provided valuable insights into amendments and changes to building regulations with a direct bearing on HKCRA member organisations.
當晚列席香港混凝土維修協會周年晚宴特別嘉賓計有：香港屋宇署代表梁沁宜小姐、商 界環保協會環境管理總監張潔儀女士、註冊小型工程承建商簽署人協會主席黃永華先生 及香港大學結構工程系主任和香港混凝土學會會長關國雄教授。 當晚主題演講嘉賓由香港屋宇(小型工程)高級屋宇測量師鄭恆安先生擔任，分享其對建築 物規例修訂和改動後，香港混凝土維修協會各會員所受影響的獨特見解。
Addressing the gathering, HKCRA Chairman, Brian Clements, noted that this year the annual HKCRA Awards were presented to four varied and very interesting projects.
香港混凝土維修協會主席白加恩（ Brian Clements）先生向當晚賓客致辭時，指出今年 的大獎分別由四個不同類型卻別開生面的項目奪得。
“We are always impressed with the variety and standards of entries submitted for HKCRA Awards consideration,” stated Clements. “As the industry increasingly embraces ever higher standards, environmental considerations and notable safety records, the concrete industry also continues to develop as the methodologies and products employed continue to evolve.”
「每年香港混凝土維修協會卓越大獎競逐者的種類和水準都令我們對留下深刻印象，混 凝土維修行業追求更嚴格凡營運標準邁進，更重視環境考量和注重安全紀錄，香港混凝 土行業會隨著技術方法及產品不斷演變而繼續發展。」
“And while we are delighted that participating companies enthusiastically entered the annual HKCRA Awards, we also invite and encourage Hong Kong’s larger construction firms, such as Gammon, Hip Hing, Paul Y, Leighton and others, who also undertake concrete repairs, sometimes on a significant scale, to step forward and enter the Awards.” Clements also noted that the HKCRA has finally commissioned Martin Harris to write the Repairs Manual on behalf of HKCRA. The Draft manual is scheduled for acceptance by the Committee by year-end 2012. Commenting on 2012 HKCRA Awards, Clements thanked the judges - Meinhardt Technical Director, Martin Harris, and CanBuild Director and HKCRA President,Trevor Gregory for their expertise and professionalism in judging the 2012 HKCRA Awards entries. Judging Following due diligence and lengthy consideration in relation to Awards entries, the judges decided that this year there should be three Awards of Merit and one overall Winner. These were awarded to: Overall Winner Nga Luen Construction and Engineering Company Ltd. “An interesting and complex project involving specialist materials combined with both Traffic and Health and Safety Management” Merit Award Projexasia Ltd. “Attention to Safety” Merit Award Marvel Harvest Ltd. “A well rounded project and submission” Merit Award Ronacrete (FE) Ltd. “Incorporation of Training and Supervision” The judges placed major emphasis during their assessment of each entry on the following: • Specialist work - a project that is different or special, with if possible: difficult access, severe corrosion, special formwork and green solutions. • The selection process of materials used for repairs - specifically why the materials used were chosen: not necessarily brand names and what properties were needed and why. • Evidence of good workmanship through a simple method statement that addresses the specific repair issues supported with some intermediate pictures. • The pictures submitted to judges must clearly illustrate good works, operatives wearing helmets and boots and hand railings and scaffolding, evidence of health and safety awareness and good photos of the finished job.

Traffic Control As the job area was located in a busy bus centre with quite frequent traffic, Nga Luen Construction and Engineering Company Ltd. was required to allocate extra manpower to control the traffic in order to minimise the disturbance to the daily routine at the bus centre. Traffic control planning was also constantly changing depending on which area works were being carried out in. “The most challenging aspect of this project was to overcome the complexity of the project and to fulfil our client’s high demand for quality and safety requirement,” stated Nga Luen Construction Project Manager, Raymond Lau and Engineering Company Ltd. “As neither an architect or consultant was employed to monitor the project, we had to keep track of our work under the direct and close supervision of KMB.”
Nga Luen Construction employed around 30 workers on this project, each with the appropriate qualifications of construction craftsmanship in different trades. Our company demonstrated its professionalism in the building repair field at the work site and liaised responsibly with our client.” 雅聯工程有限公司是香港註冊的一般建築承建商及註冊小型工程承建商，業務範圍包括 大型建築物保養，混凝土維修，防水處理，室內設計裝潢及隔熱處理。公司客戶群以政 府部門、慈善團體、學校、安老院、幼兒園及幼稚園和屋村為主。 於2011年八月至十一月，雅聯工程對九龍巴士有限公司分別在九龍灣車廠不同位置，進 行在洗車間及行車道舖上防滑路面、解決拱腹滲水和補塞混凝土裂縫的維修工程。 混凝土維修物料計有：快硬環氧樹脂828 混凝土或瀝青專用防滑鋼沙 (粒度#10)、 SL828 環氧砂漿和 SL828 自平無縫地皮加彩色樹脂表塗層。舖上地板時嚴格執行六點 步驟：時刻保持工地乾爽清潔、沿著裂縫鋸開50毫米闊50毫米厚方塊，對表層進行磨碎 和噴丸處理，然後以環氧砂漿修補水池和裂縫位置，最後進行地皮自平及積水測試後大 功告成。 交通管制 施工地盤位處繁忙巴士車廠，每天均有大量車輛出入，雅聯需按規定加派額外人手控制 交通，務求工程對車廠日常運作的影響減至最低。交通管制規劃亦隨施工位置而時刻 更改。 雅聯工程有限公司的項目經理劉偉文先生指出：「項目最困難之處是要同時克服工程複 雜性和達致客戶在品質和安全方面的嚴格要求，我們並無聘用建築師或顧問監視工程， 卻仍需在九龍巴士有限公司直接及細心的監察下，時刻匯報工程進度。」 雅聯工程為這項目聘用了三十名工人，每一位均獲得相關建築技術資格，公司在工地展 示出在屋宇維修的專業態度，及和客戶保持良好溝通。

Merit Award – Marvel Harvest Limited 優異獎 — 萬隆哈佛士有限公司
Marvel Harvest Ltd., was contracted to carry out concrete repairs in relation to re-roofing works at Cheung Hang Estate Community Hall from January to April 2012 “There were several difficulties associated with this project,” states Marvel Harvest Project Director, Kent Lam. “These included the roof surface being obstructed with a lot of building services equipment, including air-conditioning plants and pipes, disturbance to existing users below the roof area, restricted access of the small manhole and cat-ladder called for the use of an extendable mobile crane off the building for the transportation of materials and tools, and also restrictive working hours”. “Marvel Harvest used UNOSINT sheet type waterproofing membrane for floors and PARALON for the exposed skirting, surface channels and plinths. Other precautions included special attention given to demolition works to avoid excessive destruction to old structures, including the ‘original’ waterproofing and roofing layers underneath. Disturbances and nuisance were also minimised during the progress of works.” Marvel Harvest set up safety and protection measures for the re-roofing works and also safety measures around the building for material delivery by mobile crane, removed existing roofing materials down to the surface of the asphalt layer, formed grooves on the skirting of parapet walls and existing larger pipes supports at a minimum 200mm height from finished floor level for waterproofing membrane to tuck in, and supplied and applied bitumen emulsion onto existing exposed asphalt surface as temporary waterproofing.
Further work required the laying of 300x300x30mm concrete roofing tiles with cement bedding and pointing, reserving bay joints, caulking bay joints with flexible sealant backed up with foam rods, installing aluminium flashing at wall skirting and final clearance of works area. 萬隆哈佛士有限公司於2012年一月至四月期間，被委託為長亨社區會堂的重舖屋頂工程， 進行混凝土維修工作。 萬隆哈佛士工程總監林靖國先生解釋：「這項目面對著幾項大難題：天台面層被建築物設 備如空調機組和喉管阻礙，施工時會產生噪音滋擾，加上施工時段限制，細小沙井出口及 爬梯不便上落，承辦商惟有利用移動式吊車運送物料和器材。」 萬隆哈佛士採用了 UNOSINT 卷狀防水膠膜用於地台，和 PARALON 防水膜用於外露的 牆腳、平面排水道和柱基。其他注意事項還有：拆卸工程避免對舊建築過多破壞，保留舊 有防水工事及下層天面物料，及將施工期對居民之不便和滋擾減至最低。 萬隆哈佛士為工程建立完善安全及保障措施，包括在天面工程進行時及在建築物周圍使 用移動式吊機時。其他工序包括清除舊有天面物料至瀝青表層；在牆腳線和大型喉躉離 地面200毫米上留溝槽，以植入防水膠膜；在拆卸後的外露瀝青層面髹上乳化瀝青作臨時 防水工事。 後段工序包括舖上水泥墊層，然後舖上三百乘三百乘三十毫米預製混凝土地台磚，最後以 水泥抆口，並預留冷縮熱脹位置於地台磚分倉接駁位，用彈性密封膠以發泡膠棒承托填塞 該接駁縫隙；接著在牆腳線安裝防水鋁片；並於施工完畢後清理場地。
Merit Award – Ronacrete (Far East) Limited 優異獎 — 永聯結(遠東)有限公司
Wah Tat Construction Ltd., contracted Ronacrete for external façade renovation works to Hong Kong Housing Society’s Tui Min Hoi Chuen estate in Sai Kung. Over 6000 square metres of external façade were repaired.
superior waterproofing properties and a high performance waterproofing material needed to be applied onto areas around window surround. The waterproofing, new render and tile adhesive materials had to be compatible with each other.
“Tui Min Hoi Chuen is a housing estate built by Hong Kong Housing Society in 1986,” stated Ronacrete Managing Director, Brian Clements. “The estate was the first Rural Public Housing estate located on the Sai Kung seafront of Sai Kung and had been attacked by the sea winds, leaving the external façade badly deteriorated. Glass mosaic tiles and renders were also de-bonded from the external façade of the buildings and water seepage occurred around windows.”
“Hong Kong Housing Society decided to carry-out renovation works to rectify these problems. The main contractor proposed Ronacrete’s waterproofing and tile bonding system be used in the project. After satisfactory results were obtained from pull-off tests conducted on site mock-up panels, the client accepted Ronacrete’s system.”
「房協決定進行維修工程以解決上述問題，承建商建議項目採用永聯結的防水和瓷磚 粘接系統。在工地模擬牆板進行拉力測試而獲得滿意結果後，客戶決定接納永聯結 的系統。」
Requirements of Materials Supplier included good traceable records to supply high quality repair materials in the local market, provision of site training to contractor, ensuring only trained workers apply repair materials. Also, provision of frequent surveillance site visits ensuring correct use of repair materials and attending site progress meetings to report non-conformities found at site and suggest improvement plan to contractor, as well as being technically competent to provide remedial proposals for making good defects at site. Requirements of Materials included repair materials that were pre-bagged or pre-mixed to minimise dust generated at site.The new render and tile adhesive materials had to have
據永聯結(遠東)有限公司董事總經理白加恩先生介紹：「 對面海邨1986年由房協興建，是 西貢海濱首個鄉村式公共屋邨，長期受海風侵蝕，令外牆嚴重受損，玻璃馬賽克磁磚和批 盪剝離屋邨外牆，牆身窗邊位置不時滲水。」
按協議要求，物料供應商務必須提高質素之維修物料及優良之工程紀錄，於施工地盤培訓 承辦商，確保只有已受訓工人能處理物料。此外，供應商需經常巡視地盤確保物料被正確 使用和出席工地進展會議報告巡視事項，和向承辦商提出改善建議，最後技術上能勝任在 執漏時給予補救建議。 建築物料方面要求包括維修物料按預先預先混合及包裝好，將工地灰塵減至最少。批盪 和瓷磚粘接物料防水功能必需超卓，在牆身窗邊位置防水物料必屬高性能，而三者亦能 互相兼容。

Designed by Paolo Piva in conjunction with CR&S Varenna, the Alea range is more primary in form and features a rigorous design for a new defining of the kitchen. A project by Paolo Piva featuring 'minimal' formal characteristics to convert every practical unit into sheer design, essential forms whilst maintaining the highest possible operability. The aesthetic concept of Alea is linked to the strong prominence, which singles out every composition, every element and which is at times an edge and at other times a frame or structure.The containers, the work tops, the wall or island operative parts become perfect geometrical 'solids', surfaces which enhance the separate materials. Every Alea detail brings out the design drive of 'giving shape' to a new concept of the kitchen. Whatever your needs, if they include outstanding, contemporary kitchens designed and manufactured to the highest ideals and productions standards in Europe, you will find it in Poliform Varenna, available exclusively in ViA showrooms in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

What if we thought about urban spaces in a new way? UrbanEdge is an integrated collection of landscape framing and furnishing elements. It is a tool for designers that can turn dead corners into outward-oriented settings, create niches within the urban flow, and enliven social spaces in parks, plazas and malls. UrbanEdge is a new resource for reclaiming and re-imagining urban space to create a Sense of Place. UrbanEdge has beauty, brains and a point of view. The visual language is expressive and playful. The brains are functionality and ergonomics based on insights into human behaviour. Seating elements swivel 360 degrees allowing the sitter to spontaneously rotate their point of view for social interaction or hide in plain sight. Designed by GGN Landscape Architecture, UrbanEdge is equally at home in healthcare, corporate, hospitality and education settings. 假如我們換一個新方式去想像城市空間? UrbanEdge 系列集合了景觀及裝飾的元素，它是一組可讓設計師靈活運用的工具，令沉悶的死角 變成生動外向的空間；在公園、廣場和購物中心內營造獨有的城市氣質。UrbanEdge 是一個新的 重組及重新想像的資源，有利於創造出一種地方的感覺。
UrbanEdge 擁有奪目的外型、智慧及看法。視覺上的語言充分流露出本身活潑的一面，智慧基於 了解人類行為及人體工學而設計；座位可供360度旋轉，讓用家發掘自己的觀點，隨心所欲地跟 社會互動或隱藏在公眾之間。由 GGN 園林建築設計，UrbanEdge 同樣在醫療保健、企業、酒 店和教育設施中發揮所長。

A STRONG PULSE IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
The heartâ€™s cycle of sustaining life begins with a single heartbeat. Every pulse is an indication of life and vitality, just as a strong facade is for a building. A facade is not only the important outer layer of the building but with a conscientious choice of materials and design, it can extend the life of the building while reducing the effect on the environment.
At YKK AP FACADE, we make this our mission.
