(this project is also published on www.e-architect.co.uk. )
Wrightstyle has supplied to a prestigious HK $500 million (£40.7 million) mixed-use development inHong Kong.
We have supplied a range of internal and external elements for a newly-completed residential and sports centre in the Tseung Kwan O district of the city.
The company was specified for the Hang Hau project by the Architectural Services Department (ASD) of theHong Konggovernment. The contractor was China State Construction International Holdings Limited, the largest construction contractor in Hong Kong.
Tseung Kwan O is one of nine new towns inHong Kong, with a planned population of some 450,000 people, much of it built on reclaimed land. The Hang Hau centre, due to fully open next month (March), is a key community element for the new town.
Wrightstyle supplied various glazed components, including two-hour glass-to-glass internal screens, 60/60 rated internal and external screens, door systems and a large number of non-rated large-span roof-lights.
The company has become internationally-recognised for the design, supply and installation of steel glazing systems to mitigate against the full range of natural or man-made threats, including fire and terrorist attack, or severe wind loading.
Wrightstyle has supplied to a number of projects in Hong Kong in recent years, including new educational and health facilities, and carried out site-specific fire testing on behalf of the ASD for a strategic transport interchange between the NewTerritories and Hong Kong itself.
Wrightstyle designs and supplies both the glass and steel framing systems in one integrated and guaranteed assembly, with fire and other testing taking place to EU, US and Far Eastern standards, in Hong Kong and Singapore – and in the UK also offers a fabrication service, using only fabricators who have been individually trained and certified by Wrightstyle’s own in-house team.
The company is currently completing Olympic and other projects in the UK with further international contracts underway inMalta, Abu Dhabi and Qatar, underlining the specialist nature of steel glazing and the importance of specifying both the glass and steel elements as one integrated unit.
