ANewR Environmental Consultants Asia

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This is a festive month, as we continue celebrating the Chinese New Year of Pig.  We hope you have enjoyed the holidays and the moments shared with families and friends.

Moving along with our “Next Decade, Next Goal” spirit, we are launching a new service specifically designed to analyze air quality using 3D Airflow Analyst.   Adding to our capabilities on modeling energy and computational fluid dynamics, we are now able to simulate large-scale air flow dynamics.  This is particularly good for green building assessments that use BEAM (Building Environmental Assessment Method) and related planning applications. Airflow Analyst is a 3D CFD (Computed Fluid Dynamics) software running under ArcGIS Desktop as an extension, enabling simulation of wind flow over complex terrain and buildings with ease of use and an advanced algorithm. Airflow Analyst is a decision support tool or exploration tool for planners, designers, researchers, and managers who want to predict or manage wind flow in their project. This tool is not exclusively for fluid experts. You can simulate and visualize the wind flow based on a common geospatial database such as DEM and an extruded polygon feature class, which represent buildings. All processes for simulation such as mesh generation, solver execution, and result visualization, can be done by intuitive operations on the ArcGIS Desktop environment.

We are also very pleased to announce that we have been awarded with an 89-month contract as the Independent Environmental Checker (IEC) to cover the Expansion of Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works. Throughout the duration of the project, ANewR will be providing the services to Drainage Services Department (DSD) of the Hong Kong Government, as the IEC ensures that the project complies with all relevant environmental requirements. This is the sixth commission from DSD that we have received. Thus, further strengthening ANewR’s market position in the sewage treatment sector. An Agreement Signing Ceremony took place on 1 Feb 2019.

Warmest regards

ANewR 3D Virtual Reality VR Consultants

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The beginning of 2019 marks an important milestone for ANewR, as we plan to start a new chapter of our book with our second decade in business. This year, “Next Decade, Next Goal” is our corporate slogan.

Looking back on the past ten years, ANewR has been commissioned by many prestigious customers, in over 100 projects.  Established by a team of seasoned environmental consultants, acoustical specialists, and electronic engineers in Hong Kong in 2008, ANewR is a leading management consultancy in Asia, providing one-stop, professional Environmental and Info Tech services to both the public and private sectors. Our vision is to lead the world’s environmental information technology, data management, and knowledge distillation. We remain committed to continuously invest in innovation, be responsive to clients’ requests and enquiries, and be reliable on project delivery; always within schedule and on budget.

Celebrating our 10th anniversary, ANewR has launched a new virtual reality (VR) application to experience the noise benefits that any potential mitigation measure can bring by providing 3D/4D immersive, interactive virtual environments.  For example, acoustics engineers, soundscape designers, architects, or any other stakeholders can walk around the virtual scene and try the different options of acoustics windows and balconies to listen to the noise levels entering the premises. This new technology allows designers and developers to “perceive” the sonic environment and have it associated with different design options and costs.  Our technology has been showcased in the Environment Academy of EPD (Environmental Protection Department) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

Next month, ANewR will join the seminar as organized by Hong Kong Quality Assurance Authority (HKQAA) to share our experience on good practices for environmental management on construction sites. Stay tuned!

We wish you a prosperous new year of pig!

Warmest regards
The ANewR Management Team
