T · PARK is a showcase of sustainable building and sets a new standard for green infrastructure in Hong Kong. Click to know more about the green features.

LOCATION
LOCATED IN NIM WAN OF TUEN MUN

T · PARK is remote from residential areas yet accessible by land and sea, while maintaining a minimum impact to the environment.

Sludge Delivery

T · PARK receives sludge from 11 major Sewage Treatment Works throughout the territory. Around 70% of sludge is delivered from the Stonecutters Island Sewage Treatment Works by sea. Sludge is stored in sealed containers and transported to the adjacent West New Territories Landfill jetty before final delivery to T · PARK by trucks. This largely reduces the loading of road traffic and its impact on the environment.

T · PARK
SELF-SUFFICIENT
NO EXTERNAL SUPPLY OF WATER AND ELECTRICITY

Heat Energy

Recovery of heat energy supports 3 spa pools, as well as the heating and cooling system of the facility.

Electricity

The incinerator, turbine and condenser work together to recover heat energy and generate electricity to support the daily operation of the entire facility.

Total Water Management

An on-site desalination plant supplies potable and process water. Wastewater is treated and reused for irrigation, flushing and cleansing purposes.

COMMUNITY
EXPORT SURPLUS ELECTRICITY TO THE PUBLIC POWER GRID

When the two turbines in T · PARK are running at their full capacity, they can generate electricity and produce surplus power of up to 2 megawatts that can be exported to power up 4,000 households.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
VISUAL HARMONY WITH SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE

T · PARK was designed by internationally renowned French architect Claude Vasconi (24 June 1940 - 8 December 2009). The streamlined and wave‐form design was inspired by the surrounding sea and hills, with the best use of sunlight, natural ventilation and green roofs to minimise energy consumption.

ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS
LOW IMPACT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
  • Low Emissivity Glass

    Glass facade with high thermal efficiency allows warmer and brighter interiors.

  • Eco-friendly Timber Decking / Reclaimed Timber

    Low maintenance recycled plastic timber is used as an alternative to natural timber. Reclaimed timber with no deforestation issue is used in the reception area.

  • Concrete Blocks / Echo-Panel

    Eco-blocks with a proportion of recycled constituents are paved in the vehicular driveway. Echo-panel acoustic wall material made from recycled plastic is used as wall treatment at the reception area.

  • Fender Wood

    Salvaged fenders from the old Wan Chai Ferry Pier are reused for landscape works and furniture.

  • Pulverised fuel ash (PFA)

    All excavated PFA materials were reused on-site for landscaping and backfilling.

  • Reused Materials

    Construction and demolition wastes from other local projects were utilised as fill materials.
