Hong Kong Velodrome

An integrated green approach to a premier cycling track

The Hong Kong Velodrome, in Tseung Kwan O, has a 250-metre cycling track and spectator facilities for 3,000 people. In addition to providing a world-class training base for cyclists and a premier venue for cycling competitions, it is designed to accommodate basketball, volleyball, badminton, gymnastics and other sports, plus concerts and exhibitions.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff provided full building services engineering consultancy for the project, incorporating a significant number of green features. Solar panels are integrated into the roof to generate renewable energy while a 3 metre vertical green wall screens the mechanical plant rooms and integrates with the walkway of the landscaped park. The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system uses high-efficiency motors, occupancy sensors and other advanced features to reduce energy consumption. Water-cooled frictionless chillers, a greywater recycling system and rainwater harvesting further save power and water.

We also conducted a discounted cash flow analysis to compare the efficiency of air-cooled and water-cooled air-conditioning systems, concluding that a water-cooled system would start to pay for itself after six years, subject to the operation and usage of the building.
