Hong Kong Children’s Hospital is the first specialist Children’s Hospital and BEAM Plus Platinum hospital in Hong Kong. Ambitious sustainability targets, along with exceptional operational performance, were non-negotiables for this hospital. Cundall provided sustainability and BEAM consultancy services which maximised both the building’s environmental performance and supported patient and staff wellbeing.

Our Sustainability experts adopted a ‘twin tower’ design, facilitating wind movement around the site. Extensive green landscaping and solar reflective materials covering more than 50% of the roof to reduce the heat island effect while ensuring beneficial outlooks. The building’s ventilation design incorporates high-performance filters, enhancing air quality and a mixed-mode HVAC system enables fresh air cooling for suitable areas. These innovative engineering solutions were delivered with the clear vision to provide a world-class healthcare facility.

Joe Tang, Director, commented, "This project is one of the first hospitals in Hong Kong to adopt a revolutionary building design and incorporate innovative sustainability features to prioritise patients’ wellbeing. Winning the Quality Excellence Building Award and the Grand Award of Hong Kong Non‐Residential (New Building ‐ Government, Institution of Community) is a huge milestone, and will encourage more sustainable institutional buildings in Hong Kong."
