Green Building Design & LEED Implementation Workshop in UM
綠色建築設計與LEED實施工作坊

ASHRAE Hong Kong Chapter, The Macau Institution of Engineers (AEM) and Macau Properties and Facilities Management Association (MPF) jointly organize, with supports of University of Macau (UM), MESA and ATEFPM, a technical workshop “Green Building Design & LEED Implementation Workshop” was held on 25th September 2010 in HG03 Theatre, Ho Yin Convention Centre of University of Macau. The workshop was delivered by Ir Dr Raymond YAU. Dr. YAU is Arup Fellow and Director of Arup Hong Kong. He is a building services engineer and building physicist who specializes in integrated design of sustainable and environmental responsive buildings. He is presently Member of BEAM Faculty and Chair of Energy Use Aspect Panel, Adjunct Associate Professor at Department of Architecture of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He was Regional Vice-Chair on Technology Transfer of ASHRAE Region XIII (2009-2010). The workshop has a opening ceremony by Mr. Lei Chu San, the representative of Office for the Development of the Energy Sector, Mr. Man Io LEONG, president of AEM, Ms. Eagle MO, president of ASHRAE HKC, Mr. Fred MA, president of MPF, Mr. Alex Choi, secretary-general of MESA, Mr. Kit Io SONG, supervisory board member of ATEFPM, and Dr. Seng Fat WONG, assistant professor of University of Macau.

This workshop is to share among the professional ways to design and build a sustain future which are environmental friendly and energy efficient. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. The participants of this workshop are over 100 Hong Kong and Macau engineers and FST students.

由澳門工程師學會、美國冷凍空調工程師學會香港分會和澳門物業設施管理協會合辦,澳門大學、澳門工程施工主管協會和澳門公職工程技術人員協會支持的“綠色建築設計與LEED實施(Green Building Design & LEED Implementation)工作坊”,於2010年9月25日(星期六)澳門大學何賢會議中心HG03演講廳舉行,並由邱萬鴻博士擔任主講嘉賓。澳門能源業發展辦公室山禮度主任代表李鑄新先生、澳門工程師學會梁文耀會長、美國冷凍空調工程師學會香港分會巫翔鷹會長、澳門物業設施管理協會馬志毅會長、澳門工程施工主管協會徐光中秘書長、澳門公職工程技術人員協會宋傑堯監事及澳門大學機電工程學系黃承發博士,亦出席是次工作坊的開幕儀式。主講的邱萬鴻博士為奧雅納董事,是北京鳥巢及水立方環保建築顧問,亦為諾基亞北京總部成為首座獲美國綠色建築協會金奬的中國綠色建築。

是次工作坊旨在提高認識、促進可持續發展,並分享如何建立和設計環保與節能建築,建立一個容許持續發展的基礎。而LEED是國際公認的綠色建築設計及估評系統,提供第三方認證並建成使用策略性指標在與改善綠色生活。LEED的開發是由美國綠色建築委員會(USGBC)、綠色樓宇業主和經營者提供了一個簡潔的框架,確定並採取實際和可衡量的綠色建築設計、施工、營運和維護的解決方案。與會者可透過此工作坊理解LEED綠色建築評估體系的概念、學習LEED實際的規劃要求和設計,而主講者分享成功獲得LEED認證的建築個案及經驗,令與會者瞭解如何獲取成為LEED認可專業資格及相關概念。是次工作坊有超過一百名港澳工程師及澳大科技學院學生參加。
