Stakeholder Engagement Session – Review of the Mechanism for Encouraging a QBE through GFA Concession

The Stakeholder Engagement Sessions – “Review of the Mechanism for Encouraging a Quality Built Environment through Gross Floor Area Concession”, organised by AD+RG Consultant on behalf of the Buildings Department, will be held on 30 January and 31 January 2019.

The study aims to align with the Policy Address January 2017, which advocated for “Under the current arrangement, a private housing development project is required, among other things, to register for Building Environmental Assessment Method Plus (BEAM Plus) as a prerequisite for application for gross floor area concession for amenity features. They will review this arrangement to further promote green building. In the review, they will consider tightening the prerequisite by requiring a development project to attain specific standards of performance in environmental protection, or even adopt performance-based and site-specific approaches to determine the maximum gross floor area concession.”

The purpose of the stakeholder engagement session is to collect views on the mechanism for encouraging a Quality Built Environment (QBE) through GFA concession. On behalf of the Buildings Department, they would like to sincerely invite members of our esteemed organization to participate in the stakeholder engagement session, which will include a brief presentation of the preliminary consultancy study findings and discussions. Both stakeholder engagement sessions will be conducted primarily in Cantonese and the content of the presentation will be bilingual identical.
