• ZCB now open to the public

    29 January 2013

    Constructed with the aim of promoting sustainable development and low carbon living, Hong Kong’s first zero carbon building (ZCB) officially opened on 5 January, 2013.

    Designed by RLP (Ronald Lu & Partners), ZCB was developed by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) in collaboration with the HKSAR Government. Located at 8 Sheung Yuet Road in Kowloon Bay, ZCB is a signature project to showcase state-of-the-art eco-building design and technologies. ZCB utilizes solar panels and biofuel (made of waste cooking oil) to generate renewable energy onsite and was designed to achieve carbon neutrality.

    Zero Carbon Building designed by Ronald Lu & PartnersZCB provides a multi-purpose hall for rent, for businesses to experience forums and corporate functions in a zero carbon environment. In addition, there are temporary indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces for businesses and organisations to display their green, low carbon and energy efficient technologies and products. 

    “At the CIC, we are committed to promoting green and sustainable construction and good practices in the industry,” said Mr. LEE Shing-see, Chairman of the CIC. “ZCB is a pioneering and inspiring project. We believe it will not only serve as a platform for the construction industry to share knowledge and expertise in low carbon building design and technologies, but also help to raise community awareness of sustainable living.”

    ZCB provides a busy programme of guided tours daily. More information at: http://zcb.hkcic.org.
