The project

Appointed as a commissioning management consultant, Commtech Asia was responsible for the testing and commissioning (T&C) management of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) and LEED consultation on the feasibility of the MEP design throughout the construction of the store.

The scope of works also included collation of the T&C specification, implementation plan and commissioning programme, reviews of MEP installation and contractor coordination, which involved site inspections of the power, cooling and controls systems.

The store adopted extensive use of energy-efficient systems, air conditioning, energy management and lighting systems. Commtech Asia was also assigned as the LEED commissioning authority (CxA) consultant, ensuring that the store was built to attain a LEED Gold rating for Commercial Interiors Certification from the US Green Building Council. At completion, it was the first retail tenant of Hysan Place and the first retail store in Hong Kong to attain LEED Gold certification.
