Delta Pyramax Co. Ltd has supplied WINDCATCHER X-Air® and SUNPIPES® on the Construction Industry Council (CIC)’s Zero Carbon Building (ZCB). The project, engineered by Arup© is the first of its kind in Hong Kong.

ZCB was designed by Ronald Lu & Partners (HK) Ltd, while Arup provided green building design and multidisciplinary engineering services to this pioneering project to showcase state-of-the-art zero carbon building technologies and raise community awareness of sustainable living in Hong Kong.

The building is a remarkable addition to Arup’s long track record of sustainable building design.

"The project represents a new milestone for green building development in Hong Kong. It will encourage the adoption of green and low carbon elements in construction."

- Mr John Tsang Chun-wah, Financial Secretary of HKSAR Government

Overall, the building has been fitted out with more than 90 cutting-edge environmental features, which will allow local and international researchers to explore and understand future design practice.

"To achieve carbon neutrality, an integrated approach has been adopted. Apart from the advanced technologies, we have also made every effort to minimise material use and embodied energy through efficient structural design and low carbon construction practices."

- Dr Raymond Yau, Arup Director

The project creates a new kind of environment that integrates work, education and social well-being. The 3-storey building comprises an indoor exhibition and education space, a showcase eco-home, eco-offices and a multipurpose hall; and the open space is the first native urban woodland in Hong Kong.
