Wai-yin LAU

E and M Consultant

WY Lau has worked on numerous projects with Design Chambers over the past 20 years as our E and M consultant and is very much part of the team. Current projects include the renovation of Middle Island Club house for the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, which is very interesting in that the whole power supply for the large facility is 200 amps. The design uses sophisticated heat pumps and other energy saving devices and after adding air conditioning and numerous electrical appliances we have managed to remain within the very limited power supply. A truly green solution
