    Ir LAM Sai-hung, Permanent Secretary for Development (Works) of the HKSAR Government addressed at the Ceremony, “The theme of this year’s Construction Month is “Revitalisation”, which signifies that for Hong Kong to maintain its edge and continue to improve, we should focus on passing on traditions and experiences as well as bringing in new ideas. This year’s Construction Month is comprised of a wide range of activities, many of which may appeal to young people, such as the Zero Carbon Music Fest, 3×3 Basketball Competition and Zero Carbon Studio. We hope the activities can deepen young people’s understanding of the construction industry, arouse their interest, encourage them to join the industry and pass on craftsmanship, and be the successors of the industry.”

    Guided tours to the new green facilities in the CIC-ZCP

    Several highly-anticipated activities during Construction Month 2019 will be rolled out at the CIC–ZCP. As the first zero carbon building in Hong Kong, the CIC-ZCP introduces the city’s first Electrical and Mechanical Modular Integrated Construction (emMiC) for Stormwater Cooling System, consuming 50% less energy than a traditional air-cooled system. The emMiC system also uses prefabricated modules, allowing associated E&M equipment to be prefabricated and commissioned off-site before being delivered to the CIC-ZCP for “plug-and-play” assembly to enhance efficiency. In addition, the glass canopy on the Eco-Café adopts the first Air Improvement Photovoltaic (AIPV) System in Hong Kong. Leveraging nano thin-film photovoltaic technology, this AIPV System generates a self-cleansing effect, which largely reduces maintenance costs and effort, boosting its power generation performance by 5%.

    To promote a healthy lifestyle, the CIC-ZCP introduced a jogging track using sustainable paints this year, while installing new outdoor solar-energy LED screens in its drive to embrace green architecture and low-carbon living. During Construction Month 2019, the public can experience first-hand the new green facilities at the CIC-ZCP.
