Sustainable, Healthy & Smart Campus

The regeneration of the Pokfield Road area into a contemporary campus hub will deliver an accessible and comfortable campus environment. The new campus will blend with its surroundings, with designs and materials of enduring quality.

Our aim is not only to build a state-of-the-art infrastructure but also to establish a healthy campus hub with nine foundational elements to achieve the first batch of “Healthy Buildings” accredited by the World Health Organization (standard yet to be established).

Green Campus

The iconic building and landscaping will improve the streetscape at Pokfulam Road and Pokfield Road junction and enhance the ambience of the surrounding neighbourhood. The Pokfield Campus will bring multi-level landscaping such as green podiums and vertical landscaping to create a green environment.

The campus responds to the natural landform and water resources by incorporating the “sponge city” concept of rainwater harvesting and recycling. The design features the adoption of natural daylight and renewable energy where possible to achieve better energy efficiency.
The campus design responds to the locale and will offer a range of outdoor spaces to connect and engage with nature, such as green rooftops, landscaped terraces and podiums.

The taller towers with green façade design and green terraces act as a landmark of the campus, while the overall alignment and spacing are designed to ensure continuous ventilation and minimise visual impact to neighbouring development.

Healthy Building

The building design aspires to promote sustainability, improve the health and well-being of all those who use the buildings through alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Throughout the design, elements for the health of the users such as daylight, surrounding environment, energy use, sustainability and comfort have all been carefully considered.

The development will adopt state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly construction methods, building materials and innovative technologies. The entire development will meet the latest environmental standards of the construction industry. The design provides a foundation for achieving BEAM Plus rating and the WELL international standard on healthy building.
BEAM Plus is the most widely adopted green building standard in Hong Kong. The standard covers the full life cycle of a building project and assesses a building with main criteria including integrated design and construction management, health and well-being, the sustainability of sites, material and waste management, energy use, water use and innovation.
WELL Building Standard (WELL) is an international assessment system for green building, which is used for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human’s health and well-being in terms of air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, thermal comfort, acoustic environment, materials, mind and community.

Smart Campus

The smart city concept encompasses uses in areas such as mobility, living, economy, and smart environment to enhance efficiency and quality of living. Well-being and future flexibility are key design philosophies in driving the design.

To offer a more intuitive, seamless and interconnected campus experience, the Pokfield Campus will leverage digital tools and technologies to improve visitor experience, optimise operational and energy efficiency, and help reduce the spread of diseases and viruses. The campus will be equipped with a high-speed network and necessary ICT infrastructure to enable cross-disciplinary collaborative opportunities on smart facility management and smart energy management. Pokfield Campus aspires to be a human-centric smart campus for students, staff and visitors, with innovations that enable the campus to adapt to their needs.

Construction Methods

The Pokfield Campus development will adopt state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly construction methods such as Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) and non-percussive type foundation. The use of innovative technologies in building and design aims to achieve the international standards on healthy building, and the entire development will meet the latest environmental standard of the construction industry.

MiC uses modules that are prefabricated to be delivered and assembled on site. This innovative construction method helps shorten the construction period, minimise dust and noise emission and contributes to the quality, safety and sustainability aspects of the building.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is used throughout the design and implementation of campus development. It refers to using 3D building modelling software to increase productivity and bridge communications between architecture, engineering, and construction.

Pokfield Campus utilises BIM through generating and managing building data during its design, construction and building life cycle. It marks an advance in using digital design tools and data to visualise and more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings.
