Seeking to transform the Western Wholesale Food Market Harbourfront into an attractive and accessible landmark in Hong Kong, the Harbourfront Enhancement and Revitalisation project contracted the supply and installation of a sustainable timber decking system designed to enhance the open space for public enjoyment.
The Building Products team of Jebsen Industrial Distribution & Services provided the customised decking solutions, architectural products, and accessories across the 1400 sqm boardwalk to support the revitalisation project.
With environmental conservation in mind, Jebsen carefully selected building products to meet the project’s design and performance requirements.
Green accredited Exterpark timber was chosen for its natural appearance, which blends in harmoniously with the surrounding environment and its ability to withstand the humid air. The high-density 28mm-thick Elondo hardwood, highly resistant to decay and insects, carpets the boardwalk of the improved space.
Buzon screwjack pedestals, used to raise the deck boards to a level-floor finish, were handpicked for their eco-friendly make-up of 4mm thick recycled polypropylene and their impressive load performance.
Exterpark’s patented hidden fastening system supports the project goal of creating a safe and enduring space for the public. Supported by robust aluminum track joists instead of traditional wood joists, the hardwearing deck work, together with the robust Buzon’s pedestal, are capable of safely supporting the expected high foot traffic across the walking area.
The project presented an opportunity for the team to deliver a flexible, bespoke solution that meets the client’s aesthetic needs, without compromising the critical structural elements. These include the choice of timber that can be built into different shapes, and applied in the installation of custom-designed shade arbours, fence panels, and sitting benches.
Meeting these special design requirements respected the client’s vision for the project while underscoring Jebsen Building Products’ extensive knowledge in the products and services it delivers.
Commitment to Quality
Through this project, Jebsen Building Products again demonstrated its expertise in the supply and installation of high-quality decking solutions for large-scale landscape and community projects.
