The Hong Kong Jockey Club Shatin Communications and Technology Centre
Shatin, Hong Kong

The Shatin Communications and Technology Centre (SCTC) at Shatin Racecourse is designed to provide a world-class working environment for staff of The Hong Kong Jockey Club. It brings together a series of core operations within an improved, more sustainable environment which caters to the long-term operational requirements of the Club. Each floorplate of this ten-story building is about 5,000 square meters, and there is a six meter deep basement housing plant rooms.

The building accommodates the Club’s Main Telebet Centre, an Integrated Control Centre, the IT Department, Broadcasting Department facilities including their television studios, and a Hong Kong Jockey Club College for ongoing development of Club employees. The College, on the top floor, opens onto a tree-filled courtyard which leads up to a split level roof garden with uninterrupted views of the racecourse.

With sustainable design features including outstanding energy performance, use of solar hot water heating, incorporation of a rain water recycling system, and numerous measures for occupant well-being, the project achieved LEED Gold certification and BEAM Plus Gold certification, and has won the 2016 ASHRAE Regional XIII Technology Award.
