Additional Details

The design team of the King Wah Road building have incorporated a number of innovative features and techniques to devise a building capable of effectively addressing the health and wellbeing concerns of its occupants. Below is a sample of these methods.

Interior surfaces in the car park area are coated in a low VOC, photocatalytic TiO2 paint. This significantly improves the air quality of the area by removing irritant, volatile compounds through a passive decomposition effect. Solar dessicant systems are used for air conditioning, and enhance control of indoor thermal and humidity conditions. This not only improves thermal comfort and reduces indoor mould growth, but also does so at a reduced energy cost compared to conventional air conditioning. Indoors, active chilled beams provide effective cooling of lobby areas while minimising the risk of discomfort due to cool air drafts. Light shelves are built into the facade to allow greater penetration of light into the floor plan, resulting in increased daylighting and improved working conditions for occupants. In conjunction with this, exterior shading was designed using input from the daylight and solar analysis in order to minimise discomfort to occupants. A combination of particulate air filtration systems, photo-catalytic oxidation purifiers, and bio oxygen generators is used to provide pollutant-free, VOC-free, and odourless air to the interior spaces of the building Designers used a CFD analysis taking into account local wind conditions to design a system making use of the building’s natural ventilation potential to increase the rate of the building’s Air Changes.”The design team of the KWR building have incorporated a number of innovative features and techniques to devise a building capable of effectively addressing the health and wellbeing concerns of its occupants.”
