There is a gap, wider than the grand canyon, between the aspirations of Design standards, and actual building Performance, HAESCO hosted this seminar to examine the challenges. Below are photographs from HAESCO’s Energy matters seminar held on 2 Nov. 2015 at Jockey Environmental Building, Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong

We were honoured to host two expert speakers:

  1. Tom Jones (BSRIA) – a renown air testing expert with 30 years experience, his topic was Leaky buildings, and air tightness standards.
  2. Ir Paul Sat (Swire) – an engineer with 30 years building services experience, his topic was Big Data, or using building data to optimise the operation of VAV systems and using VFD’s the impressive annual energy savings.

Tom’s seminar explained the history and impact of building regulations form the UK perspective, there are no standards used in Hong Kong presently. And then explained the standards used to test and assess buildings in Europe today, and the resulting energy savings expected.

Paul’s seminar explained the method and energy savings resulting from improving existing Swire buildings, focused on the typical VAV system used for air conditioning Hong Kong’s Class A Commercial buildings, and he demonstrated how they achieved 30% energy saving.
