Heritage Conservation
Jebsen Building Products provides a complete flooring solution to revitalise graded historical buildings

Jebsen Building Products has offered a comprehensive range of quality flooring solution, including the stage and hardwood flooring, to the rejuvenated Yau Ma Tei Theatre and Red Brick Building in Hong Kong. The buildings are now converted into a Cantonese Opera Centre and a supporting facility, for talented young performers and Xiqu lovers.
Tarkett Sports indoor sports flooring system and tempered hardboard were installed on the stage of the Yau Ma Tei Theatre. The products offer ideal shock absorption to enhance safety of the performers by reducing the likelihood of injuries caused by excessive surface force.
Meanwhile, Exterpark hard-wearing timber flooring with invisible fastening system was selected for the rehearsal rooms, souvenir shop, balcony floor deck and staircase housed in the Red Brick Building nearby. The natural appearance of the timber floors match gracefully with the surrounding red brick façade, arched verandahs and granite coping stones.
The Yau Ma Tei Theatre and its supporting facilities are now opened as a permanent performing venue for Cantonese Opera troupes.

Historical background of the buildings
Built in 1930, the Yau Ma Tei Theatre is the only surviving pre-World War II theatre in Kowloon District. The Yau Ma Tei Theatre ceased operation in July 1998. It was classified as a Grade 2 historical building by the Antiquities Advisory Board in the same year.
Built in 1895, the Red Brick Building was formerly the Engineer’s Office for the old Water Pumping Station on Shanghai Street. It is the oldest surviving building of a water pumping station under the Hong Kong Water Supplies Department. The building was classified as a Grade 1 historical building by the Antiquities Advisory Board in 2000.
