Zero Carbon Building Hong Kong

The first Zero Carbon Building in Hong Kong was developed by the Construction Industry Council in collaboration with the Hong Kong Government covering a site area of 14,700m² located in the heart of Kowloon Bay. A zero carbon building attains zero net energy consumption or zero net carbon emissions on an annual basis.

The 3 storey building including basement comprises an exhibition and education area, eco-office, eco-home and multi-purpose hall, eco-café and HK’s first native woodland. It aims to showcase state-of-the-art eco-building design and technologies to the construction industry and general public.

Krueger provided the complete M&E package for the building. Various innovative systems have been adapted including high-volume-low-speed fan, underfloor air supply, radiant chilled beam cooling system, desiccant dehumidification, windcatcher, lightpipe, earth tube cooling and solar hot water system for the purpose of energy saving. Grey and black water reclaim system was utilized to recycle water use. The building goes beyond traditional zero carbon with renewable energy generated from photovoltaic panels and integration of the air conditioning system to the tri-generation system exporting excess energy to local grid to offset power consumed.
