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.
