摘要In 2003, Hong Kong was hit by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) from which many people died. The Hong Kong Government subsequently set up a Team Clean Committee to investigate possible infectious disease prevention measures and policies. One of the general feelings was that SARS should be taken as a wake up call to critically examine the city for healthy living. Team Clean then charged the task to the Planning Department, HKSAR. It initiated a study titled: "Feasibility Study for Establishment of Air Ventilation Assessment (AVA) System". In 2003, the research contract was entrusted to Professor Edward Ng of Department of Architecture, CUHK. Over the next two and a half years, a number of studies were conducted. The study eventually led to a methodology of Air Ventilation Assessment (AVA). Unlike many countries with guidelines for dealing with strong wind conditions, AVA is a guideline for weak wind conditions specifically designed to deal with congested urban conditions. The AVA system basically establishes a method for project developers to objectively assess their designs. The Government of Hong Kong has adopted the system and will require all major development projects to undertake the assessment. The first test case has been a 328 hectare old-airport site in the city centre. The scientific and implementation processes leading to the AVA system is reported in this paper.
