Technical Visit to New World Victoria Dockside (K11)


Prepared by: Ir Andrew Yan


29 members had joined the captioned visit organized by the Electrical Division on 19 October 2019.  


Upon arrival, Mr Anders Yau, Associate Project Director – E&M and Mr. Patrick Ho, Project Manager - E&M of New World Development Company, welcomed our members and gave us a brief introduction of the re-development.  Victoria Dockside is built on the site formerly known as Holt’s Wharf - a godown terminal next to the Kowloon and Canton Railway in Tsim Sha Tsui.  The redevelopment project was commenced in 2012 and involved over 100 international and local architects and designers in Hong Kong.  The re-development complex consists of 3 major parts, including K11 Musea (shopping center), K11 Artus (serviced apartments) and K11 Atelier (offices) and was fully opened in Q3 2019.

 After the briefing, the member visited the grid-connected building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system and the oil-free chiller plant of K11 Atelier.  This facade BIPV system is one of the HK’s largest BIPV systems.  The building acquired two top-class green building certifications, and its energy usage intensity is 1.5 times lower than typical Hong Kong office buildings. 

After that, the participants visited the green features of the complex.   Besides the 50,000 square feet of green walls inside the shopping arcade, Nature Discovery Park, the Hong Kong’s first urban biodiversity museum and sustainability-themed education park, was built at the roof the shopping arcade.  It showcased Hong Kong’s ecological importance and global value and played host to a variety of rare plants endemic to Hong Kong shore. 

Through this visit, members gained an in-depth understanding about the operation of Victoria Dockside and its concept.  On behalf of the EL Division, we would like to express our gratefulness to Mr. Yau, Mr. Ho, New World Development Company Limited and K11 Group for arranging and supporting the visit.
