In a move to make more Departmental Quarters (DQ) available for the rising number of married and eligible rank-and-file employees from various disciplined services departments, the Hong Kong Government has approved the redevelopment of Kwun Tong Staff Quarters at Tseung Kwan O Road.
Following a plan to integrate green and water-efficient features into the project, the Architectural Services Department of HKSAR has specified the sanitary fittings and accessories from Jebsen Industrial Building Products.
The project is targeted to complete by mid-2019.
This appointment underscores our Building Products Unit’s recognised portfolio of sustainable building solutions, as well as its big-picture and customer-focused orientation in every project it undertakes, whether in the private or public sector.
Jebsen Industrial will provide end-to-end service, beginning with a thorough examination of the government’s vision and requirements for the project. The team studied the product requirement and brought their technical know-how in translating the planned adoption of water-efficient requirements for the new two 32-storey quarters buildings to be constructed. Furthermore, they took note of current building regulations and BS compliance in developing their project proposal.
With the environmental requirements in mind, the team developed a customised sanitary solution mix to benefit the future residents of the 464 flats in the buildings. The solution proposes over 500 sets of sanitary fittings and accessories from reputable eco-friendly brands such as Geberit-Twyford ceramic wares and TOTO faucets and washbasins, among others. These water-saving sanitary solutions will support the project’s outlook toward energy conservation, and to bring it closer to its targeted accreditation as a BEAM platinum-rated building upon its completion by mid-2019.
Geberit-Twyford WCs will be supplied to the project.
