Citi $50 Billion Climate Change Investment Initiative In 2007, Citi set a landmark goal to direct $50 billion over 10 years to activities that mitigate climate change.The scope of this initiative includes internal operational projects as well as financing for alternative energy, energy efficiency, investments in clean technology, and lending for green affordable housing and other community assets. On 23 April Citi announced that they have reached this goal three years early, directing $53.85 billion to these initiatives through the end of the year. Citi Director of Corporate Sustainability, Bruce Schlein, said: “The reaching of the $50 billion goal is something we can all be proud, and especially the numerous teams and individuals at Citi who contributed.While we're very proud of what we've accomplished, we know there is still much more to be done. We are now preparing to establish a new environmental finance target, which would include climate mitigation activities as well as other financing to support the environment and help communities and cities adapt to our changing climate.”

Generation of tidal energy in China edges closer The large-scale generation of clean, renewable energy from the ocean’s tides has moved one step closer with the news that the Chinese National Energy Administration has commissioned an economic assessment into the viability of building a Dynamic Tidal Power (DTP) facility off the east coast of China. The potential facility would involve the construction of a dam stretching 60-100 km perpendicular to the Chinese coast between Xiamen and Shantou, and in the entrance to the Bohai Sea.The dam would capture power from the tide through a network of 4,000 turbines that would generate up to 15 gigawatts of energy.This is the equivalent of six large coal or gas power stations and would provide energy for more than ten million homes. A consortium of eight Dutch companies, including ARCADIS, is leading the development of this new, patented technology with the Chinese Government, known as the POWER

How coal-fired power plants can slash pollution In May, the Associated Press reported that, three years ago the operators of one of the nation's dirtiest coal-fired power plants warned of "immediate and devastating" consequences from the Obama administration's push to clean up pollution from coal. Faced with cutting sulphur dioxide pollution by 80% in less than a year, lawyers for EME Homer City Generation L.P. sued the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to block the rule, saying it would cause it grave harm and bring a painful spike in electricity bills. But, none of those dire predictions came to pass. Instead, the massive western Pennsylvania power plant is expected in a few years to turn from one of the worst polluters in the country to a model for how coal-fired power plants can slash pollution. For more than 40 years, Homer City has spewed sulphur dioxide from two of its three units completely unchecked, and still does because it is largely exempt from federal air pollution laws passed years after it was built in 1969. Last year, the facility released 114,245 tons of sulphur dioxide, more than all of the power plants in neighbouring New York combined. The owners of the power plant have committed to install $750 million worth of pollution control equipment by 2016 that will make deeper cuts in sulphur than the rule it once opposed.The EPA estimates that about 30% of the coal-fired units in the U.S. are operating without scrubbers, pollution control equipment to control not only for sulphur dioxide, but also mercury, a toxic metal that will be controlled for the first time from power plants next year.

Programme. Following a series of feasibility projects over the past three years which have demonstrated the proof of the principle and assessed potential locations, the current economic assessment will look at the design and construction costs which are estimated to be in the region of US$40 billion. In addition to China, a number of other coastal locations around the world have been identified as having potential for dynamic tidal power. These include the Korean Peninsula and in the North Sea off the coast of the UK and Northern Europe. The Chinese economic assessment is expected to be completed by the end of 2014. If successful, the next stage is the testing and final design with the project potentially being completed by 2020. More information at: www.powerdtp.nl, or: www.arcadis.com.

Benoy designs green for Taiwan High Speed Rail Benoy has unveiled the design for Taiwan High Speed Rail’s (THSR) Hsin Chu Station Mall. Presented at the recent contract signing for the scheme, the practice revealed a green architectural design that melds into the landscape of the site. THSR appointed Benoy to conceive a low density retail project which would also deliver a green environment to benefit the community of Hsin Chu and surrounding residential developments. Following the current trend to create more diverse and vibrant transportation hubs, the development will be built on a 30,000m2 site directly connected to the Hsin Chu High Speed Rail Station.

water collection, grey water recycling and solar power have all been integrated into the design. The North-East angled plots act to mitigate the windy climate and the landscape will be drawn up to the roof of the low-rise retail buildings to create multi-functional green spaces. The three-dimensional retail experience has preserved a large portion of the landscape for the users. The green slope design will be accessible from ground level and transformed into outlets for dining, restaurants and entertainment. The landscaped scheme will also feature an amphitheater and eight cinema houses alongside the retail offer.

Benoy’s design has prominently featured environmentally-friendly initiatives to support THSR’s green vision. Sustainable building materials, sun shading, green roof insulation, rain

Best practices for river restoration and waterfront development

Ultra-luxury hotel to crown Guangzhou’s tallest building

Atkins has completed a plan for the Dongliang River restoration and landscape design which creates a new ecological leisure destination in Chongqing, China and mitigates existing environmental risks such as flooding and poor water quality. Chongqing has 29 million inhabitants and it is hoped the enhanced river landscape will also encourage new waves of tourists that will help bring growth and regenerate the surrounding district. It is one of the first projects in China initiated to tackle the major urban problem of water contamination and ecology civilisation which is gaining increasing political and social importance both at the city and Central government level. Dr Yufeng Guo, Atkins’ director for water engineering in China, said:“Development of the Chongqing area meant that the city needed a design strategy for dealing with flood and poor water quality issues affecting the central Dongliang river. This was a heavy engineering task but it had to be handled sensitively as our other prime directive was to ensure the waterway evolved into an attractive urban feature. The scheme will include support facilities for activities such as water sports, fishing and rock climbing. We also aim to establish a cultural waterfront development and a visitor centre along the riparian landscape, ensuring the whole area is walkable and cycle-friendly.”

Pomeroy Studio scoops green design awards May 2014 was a month of celebration at Pomeroy Studio as the practice won a number of green accolades, including the Singapore Building and Construction Authority’s [BCA] Green Mark Platinum Award for B house – the first operational carbon negative landed property in Singapore, which is scheduled to commence construction imminently. The B House, led by Jason Pomeroy and supported by Associate Principal Yoshi Shimada, is a house that pushes the envelope of passive green design to optimize natural light and ventilation and drastically reduces energy and water consumption to the point of being almost zero carbon. But the installation of PV cells to the roof, equating to under 1.5% of the building budget, makes it carbon negative – generating more energy than the house occupants can consume. Despite its far-reaching green design, the house is the same cost of average landed bungalows in the vicinity. At the BCA ceremony on 22 May, Pomeroy Studio’s Sustainability Consultant, Deepshi Bhogal, said: “We’re delighted to see B House receive the recognition it deserves in order to demonstrate to developers and designers that the key to zero carbon design is a return to passive design with optimized environmental performance.”

Linden Comansa tower crane atop The Royal Garden Luxury hotel The Royal Garden is located in Kowloon, an urban district with one of the highest densities of population of the world. This 5-star hotel is surrounded by narrow streets crowded with people and traffic.This environment presented a great challenge for the company Teamfield Building Contractors, responsible for the extension works of the hotel, which will grow from the current 12 floors to 15 floors by the end of 2014. Due to the requirements of the project, it was necessary to have a tower crane on the roof, but the height of the building and the narrow streets surrounding the hotel were quite an impediment to erect it.The 10CJ140 tower crane from Linden Comansa, was the obvious choice. Its modular and lightweight sections and components ensured a quick and easy erection, and by its technical features (maximum load of 8 tons), the crane was the ideal for the work on the roof. Proficiency Equipment Operation Manager, Paul HH Hung, said: "Teamwork between all stakeholders has been fundamental to come up with the best solution. In addition, we have had to negotiate with the authorities and managed a very tight plan. The experience has been a little stressful but very satisfactory for all parties".

BIG designs museum for luxury Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet Swiss luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet has choosen BIG to expand its historic headquarters. The 2.400m2 pavilion will be a striking landmark to precision seamlessly integrated into the local landscape - reuniting the buildings with the undulating fields of the valley. BIG created an intertwined spiral shaped pavilion which is conceived as a storyline for the visitors; blending old and new and guiding the visitor through a linear sequence of spaces and events, from the entrance through lounges, galleries and workshops, to the attic of the heritage building in the workshop where it all began. BIG Founding Partner, Bjarke Ingels, said: “Watchmaking, like architecture is the art and science of invigorating inanimate matter with intelligence and performance. It is the art of imbuing metals and minerals with energy, movement, intelligence and measure; to bring it to life in the form of telling time. Unlike most machines and most buildings today that have a disconnect between the body and the mind, the hardware and the software, for the Maison des Fondateurs we have attempted to completely integrate the geometry and the performance, the form and the function, the space and the structure, the interior and the exterior in a symbiotic hole.”

RICS Hong Kong 6th Annual Conference The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) held its sixth Hong Kong annual conference in May. With the theme of ‘Integration: Where Do the Opportunities Lie?’. Renowned international and local speakers came together to discuss the importance of integration in the development of Hong Kong, with a particular focus on integration with neighbouring regions and the role Hong Kong will play. Director of Property of The Hong Kong Jockey Club, Michael J Moir, said: “Integration of Hong Kong and the rest of the Pearl River Delta has always been inevitable, largely as a result of the region’s geography. Further integration can create opportunities for businesses in Hong Kong to acquire land for growth in ways previously not possible. Ultimately, Hong Kong’s relationship with neighbouring cities such as Guangzhou can certainly be a complementary one.” Chairman of RICS Hong Kong, Dr Daniel Ho, said: "Urban Development in Hong Kong is very important to Hong Kong's international image as a city and Hong Kong’s competitiveness. As an international city, Hong Kong should focus on integration with our neighbours while keeping an international perspective. Taking our limited resources into consideration, we should also consider how to create opportunities through cooperation with neighbouring cities as this regional integration occurs.”

Knight Frank launches Vancouver House

The Wanda Group commissioned Make Architects to design the unique facade for the recently opened Wanda Reign Hotel in Wuhan, the most populous city in central China and a major transportation hub.The design of the luxury hotel facade is characterised by a compilation of 902 hexagonal modules which create the effect of multiple windows as ‘eyes' looking out over the city from the guest rooms. Each hexagonal module is composed of highly reflective aluminium and angled in both plan and section to protect the rooms from solar gain and create a dynamic texture on the surface of the building. Insulated silver aluminium cladding panels are arranged between the modules and LED lighting is integrated into each hexagon, adding the dramatic texture effect of the building at night. Located beside a river, the changing skyline adds vibrant colours to the exterior of the hotel over the reflective hexagonal modules. More information at: www.makearchitects.com.
