Redesigning through Sustainable Building Design


Demonstrating Green Building Leadership

Building green has been one of the Group’s top sustainability strategies to fulfil its strong commitment to the Planet and environmental sustainability. As we recognise that a large portion of our impact on the environment stem from our construction and property development activities, we make every effort to achieve a high level of resource and energy efficiency and minimise the environmental footprint of our buildings while promoting the well-being of our occupants. Our new projects, designed with sustainability in mind and built with a range of sustainability elements, reflect our strong commitment to the environment.

Establishment of Sustainable Building Guideline

Our remarkable effort in green building is guided by our Guidelines for Sustainable Procurement which covers every stage of property development, from the selection of service providers to the design and construction phases. The Guideline incorporates pre-qualification and qualification checklists, prioritising tenderers who demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability through bonus requirements. The Guideline also outlines both mandatory (e.g., adoption of renewable energy, EV chargers and sustainable construction materials) and optional sustainability elements, ensuring that our projects not only meet but surpass sustainable design standards. Together with an incentivised penalty system which designed to encourage service providers to maintain high standards in project delivery and green design performance, we strive to lead our way in green building development.

Harnessing Technologies for Sustainable Construction Practices

The Group has taken tangible steps to make our construction process more efficient and eco-friendly. We have implemented several technologies, such as the use of concrete Modular Integrated Construction (“MiC”) technique, digital inspection systems and BIM. By adopting these technologies, we can ensure better quality control and improve our construction site’s sustainability, efficiency and safety.

In 2021, the Group was the first in Hong Kong to introduce a Battery Energy Storage System (“BESS”) at our construction sites. Unlike traditional diesel generators, BESS offers cleaner energy and is much smaller and quieter. It can reduce carbon emissions by up to 85%, meaning up to 200 tonnes of carbon emissions can be avoided yearly. Furthermore, BESS eliminates the noise and fire risk associated with diesel generators commonly used on construction sites.

Case Study


Tonkin Street Redevelopment Project – First private residential project in Hong Kong with MiC technique

The Tonkin Street Redevelopment Project, a joint residential development in West Kowloon with the Urban Renewal Authority (“URA”) – is the first private residential project in Hong Kong to adopt the MiC technique. The MiC technique is a construction method that employs the technique of manufacturing free-standing modules, including finishes, fixtures and fittings, off-site and then transporting them to the construction site for integration and installation.

The MiC technique brings tangible environmental benefits over conventional methods. It enhances construction safety, quality and productivity, reduces construction waste, decreases traffic loading and minimises nuisances caused by on-site construction work. This MiC technique also speeds up the construction process and ensures high-quality construction by allowing more flexible control of building components.

This Project is also the second pilot project to test and polish the BEAM Plus Compliance Assessment for the Buildings Department (“BD”) and BEAM Society Limited (“BSL”).

Sustainable Building Materials

Ensuring our projects are steered by environmentally friendly practices has been our top commitment, as we strive to reduce the noticeable impacts of our embodied carbon and construction materials on the environment and natural resources. We have adopted a design thinking approach that considers the entire life cycle of building materials, from sourcing to disposal, to minimise our ecological footprint. To achieve this, we use materials from renewable and recycled sources, employ energy-efficient technologies and promote waste reduction and recycling. Our commitment to sustainable building practices aligns with our goal of creating properties that are aesthetically appealing, fully functional, cost-effective, environmentally responsible and resilient.

Case Study

One Hennessy-1

One Hennessy –
Adoption of low-E curtain wall system

A Grade-A office project that has achieved LEED Platinum Certification, One Hennessy is a result of our relentless effort to build our city sustainably. One Hennessy stands out for its sustainable design features, such as a low-E curtain wall system that minimises the amount of radiation heat gain and maximises the use of natural daylight to reduce the energy consumption from artificial lighting, leading to a lower energy consumption. Moreover, the building’s façade and the setback zone on the podium roof allows natural lighting and ventilation to reach the pedestrian level. One Hennessy provides high-quality commercial spaces, which will facilitate the sustainable operation of occupant companies.
