AbstractThis dissertation proposes a theoretical framework for a sustainable methodology for adaptive reuse of heritage buildings in the private sector. The ultimate goal of this research is to explore how the privately-owned historic buildings can be best conserved and provide a new affordable conservation solution. The scope of the research is confined to the challenges in the field of town planning and building surveying for this conservation-cum-hotel development project so that the research gap here entails what has not been critically analyzed or what are future research opportunities about the case of the partial adaptive reuse of a tong lau conservation project. The focus of the research is mainly to survey and document the extent and details of the existing statutory and technical challenges in the planning and construction stages of this case study. In response to the small number of adaptive reuse cases in the private sector, this dissertation elaborates on research findings of practical challenges in a conservation-cum-hotel development projects in Hong Kong. This research specifically investigates the opportunities and constraints inherent in transforming a heritage building into a new life, from urban planning and building surveying perspectives. There are many challenges in modifying an 80 years old historic building with alteration and addition works or material changes in use. By demonstrating the ways of appropriate means in application of prior approval of plan and consent to the commencement of works, it can provide platform for future discussions, or a model for future adaptive reuse projects under the conservation-cum-development option.
