Conservation International Hong Kong’s (CIHK) office has recently been awarded the top rating from the Hong Kong Green Building Council

Located in Windsor House, Causeway Bay, the office is the first office in Hong Kong to receive the BEAM Plus Interiors certification, achieving platinum – the highest level. While the firm’s work concentrates on nature conservation campaigns and projects, they are equally as committed to minimising their own environmental footprint.

Managing director of CIHK Jude Wu was the driving force behind the initiative saying, “When we committed to opening an office in Hong Kong, we wanted to support the vibrant local green building movement and ‘walk the talk’.” With features such as eco-friendly glass wall partitioning, the office can easily be moved to a new location in the future, reducing costs in the long run. 100% of the office furniture used in the design is second-hand, freeing up funds to invest in other green features such as real time energy monitoring displays.

While naturally rich in daylight, all artificial lighting uses low energy and long-life LED bulbs, and motion sensors detect when someone has left the room. Eco-friendly paint and adhesives have been used throughout, earning the office an Indoor Air Quality Certificate Award. Interior designer on the project, Kelvin Hah said, “Green isn’t a luxury. It’s simply a matter of careful, creative, intelligent design and prioritising trade-offs.”
