WilkinsonEyre part of winning design team to develop new landmark campus hub for Hong Kong University

P&T Architects and Engineers Limited (P&T) and WilkinsonEyre have been awarded the architectural consultancy contract for the redevelopment of the current Pokfield Road Site into a new landmark campus hub for Hong Kong University.

The Development Complex at the Pokfield Road site will enable HKU’s expansion with a new state-of-the-art campus hub (comprising academic, cultural and sports facilities) replacing outdated buildings on the tightly constrained site.  The project comprises an academic building to house the HKU Business School (Phase 1), a university guest house and a junior professoriate staff quarters (Phase 2), as well as an iconic teaching and learning complex (Phase 3).  The existing facilities for sports will be expanded and upgraded, fully integrated into the new complex with the utilisation of roof space and new terraced gardens.

The University will be working with the design team on the conceptual planning and specific requirements for the next stage of the building design. Construction is tentatively scheduled for commencement in early 2021, with a target completion for Phase 1 by the end of 2023.

WilkinsonEyre are also working on the Main Building, a historic monument in the Main Campus.
