Hong Kong Children’s Hospital
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."
Hong Kong Children’s Hospital successfully achieved multiple sustainability awards while prioritising patients' experience.
