    Sustainable Building

    Sustainability is the only solution for the future of brands Herbert said, businesses will need to embrace the future maze of green labels. The public are swapped with "green" claims almost daily, and only independent labels offer some hope.

    Green Building Planning

    Whether you require BEAM certification or simply want to build an environmentally friendly building, the most important step, and mistakes, are made at the initial planning stage.

    Too often the necessary expertise, including engineers are engaged too late in the process after plans are drawn, and approvals obtained.

    Looking forward, the entire construction industry needs to change the way firms are engaged and compensated. If architects are compensated based solely on the drawings produced, of course, the rest of the design team will be left behind. Once the drawings are signed off, and key decisions made that is NOT the right time to involve the E&M engineers, its already too late Herbert said.

    "....the entire design team, contractors, and specialists needs to be engaged and involved in the development process from day one."

    The entire design team, contractors, and specialists need to be engaged and involved in the project development process from day one because it's more cost effective. The impact of design rework increases as the process rubbles on. Modifications that could yield positive environmental impacts are too often ignored because the building plans are already approved, and the costs, and effort to go back and change approved plans could be considerable.

    BEAM Certification

    A BEAM is the local Hong Kong tool.

    Hong Kong BEAM and rating tools in general, values our finite material resources encouraging more design with less material. In turn that means compensating the design team, contractors and specialists in new and different ways.

    BEAM certification process for New Buildings (NB) is conducted into two stages, called the Provisional Assessment (PA) and then the Final Assessment (FA).

    A Provisional Assessment (PA) submission is the first round, it is primarily the commitments made during design stage for the future performance of the building systems, some credits require simulation to justify the intended building performance.

    At Final Assessment (FA) stage is time when the performance data must be submitted to demonstrate the performance of the building. For example, IAQ measurements, etc.

    BEAM PLUS Interiors (BI) is the green rating tool for fitting out and offices, it is slightly different to NB, after the project is 100% complete there is only one final assessment (FA) and BSL will conduct site inpsection.
