Sun Hung Kai Centre was completed nearly 40 years ago. In response to the ever-rising green standards, its management team has set energy-saving and waste-reduction goals and elevated the building's systems and facilities since 2005. Sun Hung Kai Centre has been rated Excellent, the top rating under the Selective Scheme of the Hong Kong Green Building Council's newly launched BEAM Plus Existing Buildings V2.0, after decades of effort. SHKPNews invited Ricky Kwan, project consultant for the Sun Hung Kai Centre, to introduce the building's various optimization works.
Sun Hung Kai Centre's energy-saving initiatives include adopting an intelligent building management system, installing an energy-monitoring system, enhancing the ventilation and air-conditioning system, and installing a variable air volume (VAV) system. From 2006 to 2019, over 46 million kWh of electricity was saved and carbon emissions were reduced by about 36,000 tons to help slow down the greenhouse effect and global warming. In recent years, SHKP has actively introduced innovative technology to elevate property management quality. Sun Hung Kai Centre is currently trying out Internet of Things (IoT) technology with the cloud and big data to carry out analyses to further enhance energy efficiency. It is planning to usher in Building Information Modelling (BIM), so that it will be able to obtain precise information about energy efficiency by developing a highly-accurate solid geometric modelling system. Sun Hung Kai Centre's property management team will continue to work for an even better work environment for our colleagues and tenants.
