Transformer
Work is nearing completion on the repurposing of a former police station as the new Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts. The project involved restoring some old buildings, which were in poor condition, as well as constructing some new ones (a purpose-built gallery and auditorium). The old Central Police Station comprised three declared monuments and 16 historical volumes, making it the largest heritage conservation project in the SAR. The scheme is led by The Hong Kong Jockey Club in partnership with the Hong Kong Government. “True to the [Jockey] Club’s spirit of pursuing world-class excellence, the revitalisation works have been carried out meticulously,” says Jockey Club executive director of charities and communities Leong Cheung. “We look forward to reinvigorating the heritage site by offering a vibrant heritage, arts and lifestyle experience to promote cultural appreciation, exploration and learning, talent development and, most importantly, open up a once-closed-off part of Hong Kong and transforming it into an alluring new space for the neighbourhood and indeed everyone to enjoy.”

Speed Of Light
Swedish firm CAKE already had pretty decent eco-cred. They make lightweight off-road motorcycles that run on electricity rather that petrol. But they’ve gone further now. You no longer need to plug into a fossil-fuel-powered electricity grid to charge the motor of your off-roader. CAKE have partnered with green energy provider Utellus to create a solar charging system that will keep your bike powered up and your carbon footprint down. “What CAKE aims to do to the motorbike-scene is inspiring and we [would be] profoundly proud if we [could] make the riders understand the connection between what they power their bikes with and the impact that choice has on the environment,” says Utellus CEO Stina Yones. Four panels (made by Silicon Valley-based manufacturers SunPower) on your roof will be enough to charge up your bike every day. More panels can be added, increasing your clean-energy production, the surplus of which can be used in your home, thus reducing your ‘unclean-energy’ consumption.

“It’s amazing to be a part of the new energy era and clean-tech development,” says CAKE founder Stefan Ytterborn. “To be able to serve users with clean, silent and light electric vehicles discovering the back country, on par with charging solutions, in this case solar power, making the riding self-sufficient and emission-free, is a dream come true.” Currently, this charging system is only available to CAKE’s Sweden-based riders, but the firm are looking at ways to extend the service to their international clientele.

On Her Majesty’s Special Service
British door-and-cabinet-hardware specialists Turnstyle Designs have been feted with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade. The Devon-based firm received the honour for their “exceptional export sales” record. As a result, the firm will be invited to attend a Buckingham Palace reception later this year, and have the privilege of displaying the Queen’s Award emblem on its merchandise packaging, promotional literature and letterhead for a period of five years. Turnstyle will also be able to fly the Queen’s Award flag at their Barnstaple headquarters. “I am extremely proud that Turnstyle Designs has been selected for such a prestigious award,” says founder Steve Roberts. “The award is in recognition of the whole company in every department and all their hard work as well as our hardworking partners and reps around the world who represent our line and look after our clients so well. I know how much this will mean to the staff and their families.” The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise were established in 1965 to recognise “outstanding achievements” by British businesses in the fields of innovation, international trade, sustainable development, and promoting opportunity through social mobility.

Turnstyle’s products are available in Hong Kong and China via GID Limited.
