As an on-going initiative, ArchSD strives to enhance greening and landscaping through maximisation of greenery coverage, including roof greening and vertical greening. Responsible for the development and upkeep of government facilities, we make every effort to promote best practices of roof greening and vertical greening to various government departments and quasi-government organisations on subvented projects.
In 2014, we completed 4 projects with green roofs on new buildings and 7 projects with retrofitted green roofs on existing buildings as well as 5 projects with vertical greening on new buildings for different government bureaux/departments and related organisations, including Education Bureau, Correctional Services Department, Leisure and Cultural Services Department, and Marine Department, etc. The types of buildings/facilities cover cultural complex, park, library, school, sports centre, swimming pool complex, dockyard and prison.
To further enhance environmental and amenity benefits for the community, we incorporated additional planting proposals into the project, which included planting of about 90 trees, 14,200 shrubs, 68,700 ground covers, 250 climbers and 3,900 square metres of grassed area. We further made use of the open space to organise a community planting activity under the “Be Our Greening Partner” government campaign in the fourth quarter of 2014. District councillors, community leaders, football association representatives, school representatives and students were invited to green the open space.
