The Ng Wing Hong Laboratory for Sustainable City (SCL) was founded in December 2013 and named after our donor Dr. Ng Wing Hong (of one the PolyU Outstanding Alumni). The laboratory aims to create a high-level information technology infrastructure for examining the sustainable development of Hong Kong at the building and city level. It facilitates the effective use of GIS and BIM techniques in urban sustainability, urban development, construction and other relevant disciplines.
The multimedia laboratory integrates high-quality sound system, high-definition video images, light control system, and video tracking system for video-conference functions meeting international standards. The net floor area of this laboratory is 94.6 square meters while the room can accommodate around 40 persons. It not only provides teaching and research facilities for our department, but also provides a space for interacting with external stakeholders (including the industry and other universities) to address complex issues faced in the built environment.
The SCL has been opened to use for internal and university staff since March, 2015. This laboratory is also open to external stakeholders. Currently, hardware, software and Hong Kong database (2D & 3D) of this laboratory are available to our department staff and research students.
