in China –
A case study of LEED Platinum Design
With Raymond Cheng
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
LRS Architects Inc., with offices in Portland and Shanghai,
China, is currently working on one of the largest sustainable projects
being developed in China. The project, located inside Shanghai
Zhangjiang Hi-tech Park, will consist of more than 2.2 million
square feet of development across multiple buildings sharing common
sustainable systems. The LRS design team includes additional Portland
team member Interface Engineering, who will work closely
with LRS to develop advanced sustainable systems for the project. Targeted
to become one of the first LEED Platinum certified projects in China
and the largest in the world when completed, the development will make
use of advanced engineering strategies and integrated sustainable site
design to achieve the highest rating from the US Green Building Council.
To date, only a handful of projects in China have received any LEED
certification. LRS’s efforts support the Chinese government’s focus
on environmental concerns and reflect the project owner’s desire to
be a pioneer in China’s burgeoning green movement. Raymond will share
his expertise in building Portland-China teams, with a focus on exporting
our region’s sustainable expertise.
