As a first for Changi Airport, T4 will feature a walk-through, integrated retail concept; once through the clearance processes, double height shop fronts will greet shoppers and add to the drama and excitement of the new terminal. Benoy’s timeless design celebrates physical and visual transparency. Open spaces, natural light, soft landscaping and easy wayfinding offer a continuous experience throughout the airport, both airside and landside. An abundance of skylights and the inclusion of interior gardens, trees and green walls help to capture Singapore’s national identity as a ‘City within a Garden’. The focal point of the new terminal will be the Central Galleria; a glazed, open space separating the airside and landside areas. The design enables departing passengers to stay in visual contact with their friends and family and provides a glimpse at what awaits in the Transit Lounge.    “Benoy has studied every stage of the passenger experience and have developed a truly seamless design,” said Neil Kee, Divisional Director at Benoy. “We are proud to deliver designs that ensure a personal and unique experience for all passengers — a creative approach and attention to detail have been key components in creating this experience. Terminal 4 will evolve the ‘Changi experience’ and raise the bar for all airports globally; a terminal like no other.” T4 is Benoy’s first new build passenger terminal and complements the firm’s portfolio with Changi Airport, which also includes the high-profile Jewel Changi Airport development. The public will have the opportunity to preview the new terminal during an open house event in August organised by Changi Airport Group. T4 is set to begin operations later this year.

(7 October 2017, Hong Kong) The Construction Industry Council (CIC) today presented the Scholarships for Family Members of Registered Construction Workers (Scholarships) and congratulated 26 scholarship award winners on their academic excellence and achievement in the 2017 Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination. (中文简体版请按此) The Scholarships are offered to immediate family members and young people under the guardianship of registered construction workers to commend students for their outstanding academic performance and to give recognition to construction workers who have contributed to the development of Hong Kong while nurturing the next generation of talent. From the establishment of the Scholarships in 2011 to the current year, CIC has awarded scholarships to 126 local students with an approximate value of HK$970,000. Mr. CHAN Ka-kui, Chairman of CIC and Mr. Paul CHONG, Chairperson of the Construction Workers Registration Board, jointly officiated the awards presentation ceremony at Construction Industry Council – Zero Carbon Building, and presented the awards to winners of “Open Category” and “Construction Related Curricula Category” respectively. Chairman CHAN was delighted to know that applications have reached another new record high, with the total number of applicants increasing by 30% this year. He added, “With an aim to attract young people to join the construction industry and upgrade professional skills of in-service construction personnel, CIC would set up the Hong Kong Institute of Construction next year.” Mr. Paul CHONG said, “This year, it is the very first time that we received an application from a non-Chinese student, that’s obviously very encouraging. I am also delighted to see a number of the award winners have chosen construction-related disciplines in the universities, such as engineering and surveying.” He stated that the best way to show gratitude to parents is to continue pursuing their passion in life and to use it as a source of motivation for learning.   Please visit www.cic.hk for further details.

Johnson Controls Releases Extended Fire Alarm Control Panel Range

by admin @ PRC Magazine

(2 August 2017, Milwaukee) Johnson Controls is pleased to launched its innovative PROFILE Flexible range of modular fire alarm control panels. Enhancing its existing ZETTLER PROFILE range, Johnson Controls has developed the new panels to provide advanced flexibility and usability, ease of installation and significant cost saving benefits. The new range of PROFILE Flexible panels contain a slot card mechanism which allows it to be tailored to specific end user needs, by offering approximately 50 different options to build the most economical system. To reduce the total cost of ownership, PROFILE Flexible panels contain backwards and forwards compatibility, which ensures that they can be easily integrated with fire panels that use ZETTLER’s MZX fire detection technology platform. This makes upgrading from existing systems efficient and cost effective. These panels provide increased loop power to meet the demand for visual alarms as well as traditional audible alarms. With one amp of power per loop, system designers can allocate 250 addresses to a single high power loop, or share resources across two shared power loops. This level of optimisation can significantly reduce total system installation costs. Users can also combine the high powered and shared powered loops to enable their system to be designed in line with the layout of their building. This maximises loop power usage and prevents wastage. PROFILE Flexible panels have the capacity to support 4000 addresses per panel and up to 99 panels per network, which makes it possible to expand the system and further reduces the total system installation cost, as additional panels do not need to be installed. When a business’ requirements change, the capabilities of PROFILE Flexible panels can be expanded through the slot card mechanism and future upgrades can be managed. Another key benefit of this new range is user operability. PROFILE Flexible panels offer a multilingual touchscreen user interface with touch sensitive status LEDs. These have been ergonomically engineered to facilitate ease of operation, as users can access event summary information in just one tap. Operation of the touch screen is possible with or without gloves, meaning the systems can be used in a wide range of environments. Stephen Bennett, Senior Global Product Manager for ZETTLER Fire Detection, said: “As technology revolutionises the construction industry, buildings are now smarter, providing greater flexibility to occupants based on their needs. As a world leader in the design and manufacture of fire detection products, Johnson Controls has built a control panel for the future that will evolve alongside building design requirements. “The new PROFILE Flexible range combines high performance with ease of use, and its innovative features bring lifetime cost benefits to end users. The systems are easy to install, configure and use and they provide the system designer with a wide range of practical engineering solutions. “Highly resistant to electrical noise and common false alarm triggers, the PROFILE control panels can operate effectively in the harshest of environments. However, they are equally suited to aesthetically pleasing environments through their state-of-the-art design and mounting options. Its […]

by admin @ PRC Magazine

(28 September 2017, Hong Kong) Knight Frank, leading international property consultancy, has launched its Global Cities: The 2018 Report. The report examines the market performance of 40 global cities across the world. (中文简体版请按此) Highlights: In Q2 2017, Hong Kong remained the most expensive city to rent prime office space for the fourth year running. From Q4 2016 to Q2 2017, Hong Kong was ranked the 9th with a 1.1% office rental growth. Hong Kong (Central CBD) has the smallest Grade-A office stock among major financial centres. For US$100 million, a buyer can acquire 17,727 sq ft (equivalent to US$5,641 per sq ft) prime office space in Hong Kong To increase the competitiveness of the city, the Hong Kong Government should expand the Central CBD and speed up the development of CBD2 to attract more firms to relocate to or enter the area. Hong Kong to remain the most expensive city to rent prime offices in the foreseeable future (3–5 years). Hong Kong office rents remain polarised in the Central and CBD2 markets.    Mainland firms’ investment in Hong Kong offices is expected to slow down in 2H 2017, total volume over the year will be on par or slightly drop from last year.   Global commercial real estate themes:  Super Cities – What does a best in class city economy look like?  Culture, diversity, lifestyle and opportunities necessary to draw talent people as well as innovation and entrepreneurial spirits.   Flexible Office Markets Co-working space is becoming an established feature of the real estate landscape. Co-working office provides a platform for informal networking among entrepreneurs. WeWork is now approaching 190 centres in 12 countries, with a new centre to be added to Kowloon East.   Technology and future trends Since 2007, unquestionably tech and R&D oriented cities have been outperforming other locations. China’s largest cities are displaying encouraging signs. Shanghai, which back in 2007 considered a manufacturing city, is growing fast as a tech centre. Three out of the top ten global internet firms in terms of revenue are Chinese firms. Electronic and driverless car could reshape the landscape of real estate markets, the demand for parking spaces and the development of new suburbs.   Global Capital Markets As more capital flows towards real estate, we expect major economies and Super Cities to continue to attract most of this activity, but increasingly, investors will look to emerging markets (Boston, Frankfurt, Shanghai and Madrid) for higher returns and less competition.   The Skyscraper Index The Skyscraper Index which examines the rental performance of commercial buildings over 30 storeys across 23 Global Cities. In Q2 2017, Hong Kong remained the most expensive city to rent prime office space for the fourth year running, at US$304 per sq ft per annum, increased 9% year on year.

The South Korean capital is a new addition to the list in 2017, while the other Asian cities have been included since 2013. “Seoul has stepped up to join the top six ‘Established World Cities’ due to increasing openness, exceptional digital connectivity, the presence of innovative global firms and robust infrastructure,” says Jeremy Kelly, Director in Global Research, JLL. “Once a traditionally closed market, Seoul is widening its international talent base with the presence of many multinationals, making the city highly competitive on a global level.”   Singapore and Hong Kong maintain stronghold as global cities Singapore, which ranks at number four of the seven, continues to build its position as a truly global gateway, with an emphasis on being a smart city. According to Mr. Kelly: “To retain its ranking as a global city, Singapore needs to continue fostering its innovation economy and presenting itself as a hub for talent and business.” Similarly, Hong Kong, in sixth place, continues to punch above its weight as a global city. However, it faces stiff competition from other Chinese cities, with questions raised over its future direction due to political uncertainties, and affordability issues. “Hong Kong faces both challenges and opportunities from increasing integration with China,” explains Dr Megan Walters, Head of Research, Asia Pacific, JLL. “On the one hand, it faces huge competition from the likes of Shanghai and Shenzhen. On the other, there are new opportunities especially when it comes to internationalizing the Chinese economy, notably with the Belt and Road Initiative.”   Tokyo climbs back up rankings after slipping in past years Tokyo currently places at fifth position in the top seven ‘Established World Cities’ list, an improvement on its sixth position in 2015. “Tokyo has faced challenges with limited economic growth over the past few decades, and is taking steps to become as international as other ‘Established World Cities’, which have made strong advances in their ability to attract international talent, international capital and build international connectivity,” explains Dr Walters. “But the Olympics in 2020 is providing an impetus for Tokyo’s revival as it improves its infrastructure and internationalizes further.”   Competition among global cities In Asia, issues such as poor air quality and income inequality could potentially hamper governments’ efforts to move up the city rankings. City growth is also impacted by geopolitical uncertainties – the rise of protectionism across the globe and military escalations in Asia have all altered perceptions about which cities appear to be ‘safe bets’ or present higher risks for investment. As more cities are becoming competitive, a second tier group of 10 ‘Contenders’ has emerged, close on the heels of the ‘Big Seven’. According to the report, China’s ‘Alpha Cities’ – Beijing and Shanghai – are part of this rising group of […]
