The new Harbourfront Enhancement and Revitalization project at the Western Wholesale Food Market (WWFM) has chosen our environmentally-friendly decking system to revitalize the open space along the waterfront area of Hong Kong.
The contract involves the supply and installation of FSC certified timber decking and robust pedestal support system, covering 1,300 square meters of the leisure zone. The refurbishment will bring a continuous and vibrant promenade to the community. And it is expected to be completed by end of 2017.

With our in-depth knowledge and expertise on delivering large-scale decking projects in public spaces, we understand that it is vital for the decking system to meet not only the environmental rating, but also to achieve the durability required for high traffic areas.
Exterpark FSC certified Elondo 28mm thick decking board and its new released SpeedClip clipping system are carefully selected to enhance the strength and loading of the boardwalk. The patented decking board profile with no exposed fasteners and screws are supported by aluminum track joists instead of traditional wood joists, offering a safe and hard wearing decking that can stand up to the wear and tear of high traffic.
Exterpark SpeedClip patented design delivers a speedy and cost efficient installation perfect for decking projects.
Buzon height-adjustable pedestals are also handpicked for its green attribute and load bearing capacity to create the raised deck. The pedestals are extremely strong as they are precision engineered from 4mm thick recycled polypropylene and capable of supporting loads of more than 1,000kg per pedestal. Its patented slope correcting device, which compensates for a substrate fall of 0-5%, providing a perfectly level floor finish.
Designed for use with timber, paver or steel grating, Buzon pedestals are used to create raised flooring in various applications.
Jebsen Building Products has been involved in different landscape and decking projects in Hong Kong, including Kwun Tong Promenade Stage 1 & 2, Pet Garden at New Central Harbourfront, Zero-Carbon Building by Construction Industry Council, and many more, enhancing the urban green space for public access and enjoyment.
