In the future, the company will continue to explore new green and low-carbon construction technologies and management methods, and actively drive the industry to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality.
O⬝PARK2 Low-Carbon Construction Exhibition Centre aims to become a display window and communication platform for Hong Kong’s green and low-carbon construction, mainly displaying the company’s various low-carbon construction technologies and products, covering low-carbon building materials, smart construction technology, carbon neutral cloud platform, C-SMART construction site, and site electrification measures. The exhibition centre has a construction area of 336.6 square meters and a total of two floors. There are five themed exhibition areas including the past and present of the construction industry, design concepts, and project management measures. The exhibition centre adopts MiC (Modular Integrated Construction) construction technology, and the construction is completed within one month. The exterior walls and other structures are made of BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic Technology) glass materials, striving to achieve “zero carbon operation”.
O⬝PARK2 Project Background
After the completion of the Organic Resources Recovery Centre Phase 2, it will become the largest food waste recycling centre in Hong Kong, and it will also become the first green project in China to achieve carbon neutrality during the construction period. The O⬝PARK2 project started construction in 2019 and is expected to commence operation in 2024. After being put into operation, it can process 300 tonnes of kitchen waste daily to generate heat and electricity, and the electricity it exports is equivalent to the power consumption by some 5,000 households. The project is designed with the “BEAM Plus v1.2” platinum level of the Hong Kong Green Building Council BEAM Plus Assessment, it adopts the integrated design process (IDP) design and construction, promotes green building materials and renewable energy, and develops BIM 7D, MiC, DfMA (Design for manufacture and Assembly), 3D printing, BIPV, CCUS (carbon capture utilization and storage technology) and other intelligent construction technologies, and apply digital management systems such as C-SMART intelligent site management platform and “carbon neutral cloud platform” to improve carbon accounting accuracy and efficiency. In the future, CSCI will also explore the development of carbon assets during the operation period to enhance the development of the Hong Kong carbon trading market and the transformation of the low-carbon economy in the Greater Bay Area.
