Hong Kong - 53 Stubbs Rd, Victoria Peak

The 53 Stubbs Road project is a single twelve storey residential building that does much to address HK’s notorious summer temperatures and notoriously high humidity. No structural walls inside the apartments, allowing a flexible layout, also means excellent ventilation.

The structure’s tower is supported by external columns that resemble bamboo, reflecting eastern design traditions while integrating modern structural trends.
Indeed, the “bamboo” structure is actually a circular steel column that ensures structural integrity. Cafco SPRAYFILM® WB3 intumescent coating is used to achieve the required 120 minutes of fire resistance to BS 476: Part 21.
The excellent smoothness possible with Cafco SPRAYFILM® WB3 water based intumescent coating is a precise fit for this prestigious, luxury benchmark residential project.
Promat is proud to work with main contractor Gammon Construction Co Ltd to achieve the desired aesthetic and safety results.
