RIBA Hong Kong: Brick on Break – Professional Series

RIBA Hong Kong: Brick on Break – Professional Series

Permasteelisa Hong Kong Limited has hosted and sponsored the recent event by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) named “Hong Kong Chapter: Brick on Break – Professional Series, Beauty is more than Skin Deep, Part 1” held on 26 May 2016 in Hong Kong.


The event’s talk has considered the holistic approach of integrating building façade design not only architecturally, but also with other engineering design principles. Permasteelisa contribute to the event, thanks to the speakers Mr. Raymond Lumantarna (PhD, MIEAust), Building Physicist from our Sydney Office, and Mr. Nathan Burchell, COO Asia, presenting the Permasteelisa Group’s mfree-SCCF Façade, the Group proprietary Closed Cavity Façade (CCF), and introducing the history of the various Double Skin Façade designs leading to the development of this technology.


Permasteelisa’s project 200 George Street in Sydney has served as the leitmotif introducing the different steps of the mfree-SCCF development, a first in Australia, with impressive results reaching completion of the façade installation.


Introducing the growing list of CCF projects starting from Inhouse 2 in Duisburg, Germany, developed in cooperation with the Client Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, the leading organization for applied research in Europe and completed in 2009, Roche Diagnostics in Rotkreuz, Switzerland completed in 2010, University College London Hospital, United Kingdon completed in 2012, Poseidon House in Frankfurt/Main, Germany completed in 2013 to 200 George Street in Sydney, Australia to be completed in 2016, just to name a few, we were able to demonstrate the growing number of reputable Clients adopting the mfree-SCCF technology for their signature buildings.


Besides the presence of the RIBA members from reputable Architectural Practices in Hong Kong, the event was also attended by a number of Clients and Consultants, and even representatives of Quantity Surveying Companies, who will have noticed that a comprehensive approach of the entire Client and Consultant’s Team combined with Permasteelia to develop a custom made mfree-SCCF Façade for a particular building will decisively contribute to the sustainability of the building by reducing the costs to create suitable environments for the occupants all year round.
