Construction Period:

Hysan Place, Hong Kong

Hysan Place is the first Hong Kong building that has achieved pre-certification of the highest Platinum level under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED is a green building rating system established by the USGBC since 1993 and widely used in the U.S. and Canada. The redevelopment also aims to meet the most stringent requirements of Hong Kong's Building Environmental Assessment Method (BEAM).

To enhance the project's environmental friendliness and construction efficiency, Gammon adopts Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology in reaching the LEED’s Platinum level standard. Gammon believes that this move will help reduce waste, improve on design coordination, optimise resources, and to mitigate the project risks in advance of the construction activities kicked start on site.

Other initiatives including the use of large-panel system formwork and wood from sustainable sources help promote the conservation of natural resources and raise the social awareness of the use of certified wood from sustainable sources. Polluted water during construction is recycled and used for general cleaning and dust suppression, thus reducing the consumption of potable water. Gammon also adopts a series of noise abatement measures, such as noise barriers and the use of silenced-type plant and equipment, to minimise nuisance and disturbance to the local environment. A waste management system covering the reuse, recovery and recycling of materials is implemented on site to minimise waste.

The work comprises the construction of a 36-storey retail/office building. Other facilities include a four-storey car park and retail basement, covering a total gross floor area of approximately 710,000 square feet and a site area of around 47,738 square feet.

Construction has commenced in April 2009 and is scheduled for completion in late 2011. A total workforce of 600 is employed at the peak of the construction.
