  • Located in the north of Kai Tak, a district that is to become an international showcase for green urban planning, the 22-storey Trade and Industry Tower houses Hong Kong's government offices and several administrations. This building was constructed over the course of 33 months by the teams at Dragages Hong Kong, a Bouygues Construction subsidiary.

  • The tower will be "at the cutting edge of the latest energy efficiency technologies", with "lots of room" for renewable energy (photovoltaic panels, solar thermal panels, natural light throughout the building thanks to solar tubes, solar chimneys, etc.) explains Dragages Hong Kong.

  • Located in a district that is to become a Green City, the Trade and Industry Tower embodies environmental excellence, and is unique in the sense that it meets the criteria of all environmental certifications on the Asian market. This ultra-modern building therefore aims to receive double LEED Platinum® and BEAM Platinum® certification.

  • Concentrated in green innovations, the Trade and Industry Tower makes great use of renewable energy to achieve self-sufficiency: a photovoltaic power system, solar water heating, rainwater recovery, natural management of lighting by use of fibre optic, and air conditioning using the local cooling network. Materials with minimal environmental impact and the development of wall gardens and green spaces that cover 30% of the building surface are also features of this ultra-modern building.

Trade and Industry TowerStringent environmental standards

The Trade and Industry Tower meets very demanding environmental requirements. The building is BEAM® certified, an environmental building standard administered by Hong Kong authorities and accredited by LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), an American green building certification program. The criteria it incorporates include energy and heating efficiency, water consumption, use of local construction supplies, and reuse of any surplus material.

 

500m2 of photovoltaic panels have been installed in the Tower of Trade and Industry. Over 30% of the building's total surface is dedicated to green spaces. Landscaping is a crucial part of the project. The ground floor, roof and suspended walkway will be decorated with plants. A part of the building’s facade will also be covered in greenery. In all, more than 30% of the total site area will feature plants. It has no on-site cold water production system for air conditioning, and instead relies on its connection to a central facility that serves the entire district: this reduces energy consumption by 20%. In recognition, the government of Hong Kong has awarded the project team its Highest Standard of Sustainability prize.

Trade and Industry TowerKai Tak, a neighbourhood on the rise

As a city that attracts more than 50 million visitors a year, Hong Kong had to develop projects that reflect the city's radiance and the need to sustain the tourist industry. Its first local project was the runway for Kai Tak airport in the 1950s. This is the site where the cruise terminal stands today, built by Dragages Hong Kong, which can welcome two 4,000-passenger mega cruise liners at the same time.
