The event was hosted by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council along with forums, business matchings and site visits. With respect to the launch of the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area earlier this year, Mr. Che shared the Group’s future directions and current projects in the Greater Bay Area with professionals and entrepreneurs from Hong Kong, Macau and the surrounding region. Backed with a strong international experience, P&T Group is confident in providing targeted services in pace with the Outline Development Plan.

City design, planning and integration

P&T Group has extensive experience in city design, planning and integration in central business districts in the Greater Bay Area. Since 1953, the Group has taken part in over 20 architectural projects in Central and has designed a footbridge system and escalator connecting Central, mid-levels and Sheung Wan to shape the Harbourfront skyline, showcasing its comprehensive knowledge and experience in community and urban development. The Group continues to build better communities for local residents through comprehensive urban planning and design. Guangzhou Lingnan New World City Plaza seamlessly connects footbridges and underground developments to form the highly-accessible interconnected urban spaces within the local community.

Infrastructures that connect people and community

As the Greater Bay Area initiative begins to take shape, the Group participated in the design of the transportation network in the Area, including the significant bridges: Humen Bridge, Nansha Bridge, the cross-river Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge, and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, the Rapid Train and intercity MTR. Bringing in tourism opportunities and stimulating economic development, the HUB in Shanghai is an integrated commercial project with a mix of individual offices, an exhibition centre, hotel, a Xintiandi style dining and entertainment cluster, a shopping mall and a performance centre.

Innovative green developments

P&T Group also strives to promote the innovative low-carbon developments. Canton First Estate in Foshan, a project that pursues ecologically development and green living, applies eight major environmental-friendly techniques to preserve natural lakes, provide ample green space around a golf course to maintain a liveable, sustainable community.

Featured Community Construction

Apart from comprehensively planning cities, P&T Group also puts great emphasis on architectural designs and promotes social development in different ways in order to improve their educational, medical, cultural, tourism, and recreational facilities, as well as industries relevant to their locations. The Group’s designs are located across the region, including Harrow International Schools, Malvern College, St. Paul's Hospital, Hong Kong Adventist Hospital - Tsuen Wan, Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital, St. Teresa's Hospital, Velodrome, and the Victoria Park Swimming Pool.  

Heritage Conservation and Preservation

In addition to enhancing quality of life, P&T Group also aims to promote cultural heritage through architectural designs to push the regional tourism economy forward. Take the Foshan Lingnan Tiandi and Guilin Zhengyang Pedestrian Street as examples; they showcase how historical buildings can be integrated with culture and heritage. Featuring leisure, shopping and entertainment spaces, Lingnan Tiandi and its surrounding neighbourhoods have become an exceptional landmark with a blend of local culture with modern elements.

P&T Group has been building mega scale projects in international cities proactively, and is  expanding their architectural projects to the Greater Bay Area. Equipped with extensive experience and a global vision, the team looks forward to contributing to the future developments in Greater Bay Area and China.
