UNIFIED GREEN DESIGN

Green Path Extension

Following the completion of transforming the former Kwun Tong Public Cargo Working Area into a landscaped promenade in Stage 1 of the project, the development in Stage 2 adopted the same design concept with an emphasis on openness and greenery, creating a continuous route along the Kwun Tong waterfront.

Stage 2 of the Kwun Tong Promenade provides an additional 750 metre-long boardwalk, forming the longest timber walkway along the Victoria Harbour. The construction work started in February 2013 and has been completed in December 2014.

 

Sustainable Decking

Environmental conservation continues to be the architect’s key concern. Known for its sustainable properties, FSC-certified Exterpark timber decking has been selected again to perfect the Stage 2 promenade.

Taking into consideration the high humidity in Hong Kong, Elondo hardwood species, which is characterised by its high resistance to decay and insect-attack, has been specified to cover the 4,400 square metres boardwalk by the seaside. Together with Exterpark’s patented double grove profile and hidden fastening system, the safety and visual impact of the new addition have been further enhanced.

Ensured Safety

To cope with the anticipated large amount of visitors, nearly 30,000 pieces of Buzon screwjack pedestal have been carefully installed. Pedestals are made from recycled materials which conform to the green requirement and standards of safety with excellent loading performance. The patented Buzon slope corrector helped to level the deck platform while facilitating the overall under deck water drainage. The height adjustable system also allows quick and easy access to the under floor services which ensures easy maintenance in future.

 

Quality Decking Solution

Having joined the Jebsen Industrial family since January 2015, Jebsen Building Products has proven again its excellence for providing quality decking solutions to boardwalk construction amongst others.
