Sustainable Station Features
Innovation and Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) are embedded into every aspect of the project
The overall station design incorporates elements of sustainable development, with a target to attain BEAM Plus Gold Certification for the project
The overall design of Ngau Tam Mei Station incorporates features of the surrounding environment and community, aiming to realise the integration of urban and rural areas while promoting railway development in the community. The entrances / exits of the station adopt an open design to strengthen air circulation. At the same time, the green feature helps to bring life to the station design and facilitates the station to blend softly into the surrounding natural environment. There are also ingenious details in the internal design. Part of the station concourse is made of translucent materials, which extends the landscape of the proposed open space outside the station to the station’s internal areas while enhancing natural lighting and the feeling of spaciousness. The ceilings and flooring are also uniquely designed, which offers easy wayfinding for our passengers and facilitates passenger diversion, making their journey smoother. Examples of sustainable features of Ngau Tam Mei Station include:
Caring and barrier-free station facilities, such as passenger lifts, barrier-free accesses and public toilets will be available at Ngau Tam Mei Station for passengers in need, facilitating them to travel with ease. The station will also be equipped with a babycare room, providing a more comfortable environment for passengers to breastfeed and take care of their babies.
Use of innovative technology to enhance construction quality and work efficiency
Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology has been applied at every stage of the Northern Link project to visualise the railway structures’ internal and external design, making integration and communication on construction works easier. The project team is also actively studying the adoption of the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and Modular Integrated Construction method (MiC) to minimise on-site construction processes, thereby enhancing project quality.
