Webinar: West Kowloon Cultural District Opportunities in Hong Kong

Learn from the Chief Project Manager on how to capture the business opportunities arising from this exciting 15 year project to turn Hong Kong into the Arts Centre of Asia

The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority is developing an integrated arts and cultural district with a specific number and type of core arts and cultural facilities, retail, dining and entertainment facilities, communal and ancillary facilities on a spectacular site on the Hong Kong harbour front comprising of 40 hectares in West Kowloon.

The project is fully funded by the Government of Hong Kong and is valued at HK$21.6 billion (around A$2.6 billion). The project is expected to be completed in phases starting from 2013 and lasting until 2026. Most major contracts will be offered by international competitions and tenders on a fair and competitive basis for local and international firms.

The WKCD will feature 17 cultural venues including 5 iconic buildings including a Chinese Opera House, an Art Museum, Centre for Contemporary Performance, M+, Lyric Theatre, Music Centre, and a Mega Performance Venue + Exhibition Centre.

In addition, the Authority has officially become an institutional member of the Hong Kong Green Building Council and is committed to building an environmentally-friendly and sustainable cultural district. The WKCD will adopt green and energy efficient designs, such as energy efficient lighting and equipment, water efficiency, sustainable materials, green roofing, natural ventilation, low energy equipment and so on.

The WKCD will have a cooling system for its 17 buildings, waste and water recycling systems and use renewable energy resources. These are essential steps towards achieving low carbon buildings and improve the energy performance of the development beyond normal practice.

Australian designers and cultural services providers have an excellent reputation in Hong Kong for world class innovation and efficiency. The WKCD Project presents an excellent opportunity for Australian companies in a wide range of fields, including architectural design, environmentally sustainable design engineering, and green building technologies, to offer their products and services and establish a showcase in Asia’s future cultural centre.
