Rider Levett Bucknall celebrates twice at the prestigious RICS Hong Kong Awards 2015

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) was recently awarded Sustainability Achievement of the Year and the Construction Project Team of the Year.

Organised by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the RICS Hong Kong Awards is an annual event recognising professionalism in the industry.

And the winner is Hong Kong Science Park Phase 3a and 3b

This 105,000 square-metre area spanning five buildings, is dedicated to research and development work, the latest specialist laboratories, offices and conference facilities.

The project incorporates 39 sustainable design features; by far the largest amount in a single development in Hong Kong.

Building 12W was the first building in Hong Kong to obtain the highest platinum rating of LEED (Core and Shell) 2009 Category.

The key consultants on the project were RLB, Mace, Simon Kwan & Associates and Cundall. Their team effort in the use of sustainable measures was highly praised by the judging panel.

And the winner is New California Tower

Located at Lan Kwai Fong Central, two buildings were demolished and redeveloped into a 28-storey tower, with a total construction floor area of 121,800 square feet.

The tower includes restaurants, clubs, lifestyle concepts, a rooftop bar and a sky garden.

RLB worked with LKF Properties, Cypress Consultant, Wong & Cheng Consulting Engineers, and J Roger Preston.

Together they overcame the challenges of high pedestrian traffic to deliver exceptional results.
