Hong Kong Scout Centennial Building

The Scout Association of Hong Kong formally inaugurated its centennial building on April 20, 2019

Officially called the “Hong Kong Scout Centennial Building,” the structure is a 21-storey building. The towering structure marks a significant milestone in the continuous development of the Scout Movement in the country.

“The Hong Kong Scout Centennial Building incorporated many sustainable building designs, including sun-shading fins to reduce energy penetration and natural ventilation for the staircase and lift lobbies. The building accommodates an Integrated Training Centre, Aviation Training Centre, a Performing Arts Centre and an Art Gallery, as well as logistic facilities such as Scout Shop, Scout Library and Multi-purpose Hall.” (text from https://www.scout.org/node/530223)

Boflex carries the unique combination of a built-in shock absorption material and a stable construction that can withstand almost unlimited loads. This makes the floor system ideal for venues with multi-purpose usage (schools for examples) and large arenas. The uniform performance suits children as well as adults, with good bounce and friction. Even after twenty years, Boflex performs as day one.

Tests conducted by SINTEF (formerly The Norwegian Building Research Institute) shows that Boflex surpasses all its rivals and performs exceptionally well when being used by children and adults protecting body joints from shocks.

Boflex offers flexibility to accommodate your needs. Due to its extremely low building height, it is well suited for renovation purposes. The floor system is suitable with underfloor heating, for rolling loads and allows both hardwood and elastic surfaces (Boflex Champion).

Tests show that the system can withstand an almost unlimited load, due to the special built-in foam under-structure that can never be compresses more than 50% making the system suitable for tackling the heavy weight grandstands.

Boflex must be installed on an even and selfsupporting sub-floor, or on top of an existing floor.
