Green Roof Action Project 綠頂行動 Our scheme is not just about physical implementation of green features on top of school buildings, it is about the knowledge dissemination on all related subjects for a sustainable living environment.
Green Roof Action Project 綠頂行動 – Content of Stages 1.Stage One – Feasibility Stage: Investigate and evaluate the possibility to install sustainable features and greenings on existing roof tops of schools. 2.Stage Two – Implementation Stage: Design and propose schemes of implementation; construct with participation of students to ensure knowledge of sustainability is disseminated. 3.Stage Three – Maintenance Stage: Monitor the usage of newly implemented ‘Green Roofs’ through bi-weekly visit and record any findings in report format.

Green Roof Action Project 綠頂行動 – Honorariums & Rewards All participated architects will be rewarded with 5 CPD hours accredited by HKIA. HK Architecture Centre can award participants with certificates of acknowledgement. Each professional participant with chartered / registered qualification will be rewarded with HK$450 per hour per person honorarium capped with 5-hour works for each school. Each technical support and / or graduated participant will be rewarded with HK$250 per hour per person honorarium capped with a total of 30-hour works for each school. Meaning, if there is three technical supports working on one school, each person’s working hours should not exceed 10 hours. We are also welcoming volunteers to help us in this project, Commendation Awards could be presented to volunteers.
