Aedas awarded for green design by the HKGBC

Midfield Concourse has announced that it received a Merit Award for “Buildings under design” at the Green Building Awards 2012 organized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.

An addition to the Hong Kong International Airport facilities, the Midfield Concourse is located to the west of Terminal 1 and between the two existing runways. The new airport terminal will total a floor area of 120,000 square meters (over 1,291,669 square feet) on a five-level concourse, featuring ceiling heights comparable to those in Terminal 1. The design includes 20 aircraft parking stands, 19 of which are bridge-served, including two Code F (A380) stands. The Midfield Concourse will be connected to Terminal 1 by an extension of the existing Automated People Mover system.

Central to the design of the terminal, was the integration of green features and sustainable systems, including an optimized glazed facade, water cooled chillers, and extensive use of over 20,000 LED lights to reduce power consumption.

Midfield Concourse will display one of Hong Kong’s largest arrays of over 1,200 square meters (over 12,916 square feet) of solar panels, incorporated onto the roof to harness renewable energy.

The design has been carried out in collaboration with Mott MacDonald and Arup.

The Green Building Awards is organized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) with the Professional Green Building Council (PGBC). Through GBA 2012, HKGBC and PGBC aim to provide recognition to building-related projects with outstanding performance and contributions in sustainability and the built environment.
