As part of a massive redevelopment program completed in 2008, Ocean Park Hong Kong constructed a new Grand Aquarium to replace its existing aging aquarium facility.
The Australian company Advanced Aquarium Technologies (AAT), has been contracted to provide aquarium specialist life support design and construction services for the Grand Aquarium, with Aquatic Environmental Systems (AES) and Crossley Architects providing the necessary design and documentation.
Crossley Architects prepared the necessary architectural design, modification and documentation to accommodate the alternative life support design and constructíon works that were completed by AAT into the aquarium building designed by AEDAS of Hong Kong.
The aquarium is dominated by a central tank of approximately 4 million litres exhibiting Whale Sharks.
The Grand Aquarium was constructed by Leighton Asia and was completed in early 2011.
