Ecological Park, City of Hong Kong

MENG Analysis was selected to conduct a value management study of a ecological park in Tso Kung Tam, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong. The project's design was well-conceived solution for a complex site.  The main functions of the park are to educate users about local ecology and the importance of ecological conservation, and to provide recreation for the public, while enhancing and preserving the natural environment of the site.  Although relatively large, the site's geological configuration and high density development restricted size and park features that could be included while preserving the existing environment.  MENG Analysis provided a total of 14 proposals yielding a total first cost savings potential of $4,560,000.

Key proposals included:

  • Combine exhibit halls and other building support areas.
  • Increase types of "endangered species" plants in displays.
  • Incorporate solar power for cooling, lighting, etc., as demonstration of conservation techniques.
  • Revise facility locations to save on expense and impact of clearing.
