BRE is encouraging UK construction businesses to come forward to showcase their most innovative and sustainable technologies in a new eco-city in China whose developer it is working in partnership.
Suppliers from the UK and elsewhere in the world could have their technologies featured in the Sustainable Building Exhibition Centre in the £6bn Meixi Lake Eco-City, a new community being built by Franshion, one of China’s biggest state-owned developers.
The exhibition centre itself is designed to be an exemplar of sustainability and low carbon construction, built to both BREEAM and China’s 3 Star green building standard. Called the Living Lattice, the £20m flagship building is designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios with local detailed design by the Shanghai Research Institute of Building Science (SRIBS).
The building is intended to show best practice to a wide audience and to communicate the vision for the eco-city, which comprises nearly 15m sq m of development, and will eventually have a population of more than 300,000.
BRE director Jaya Skandamoorthy said: “This is a significant opportunity for businesses to promote their innovation and expertise to a massive and highly influential developer and wider audience in China. BRE wants to hear about the most exciting technologies out there for what promises to be an extremely high profile project. ”
