Delivered programming and design development services for a major new technology park in Shanghai, China, totaling 2.28 million square feet.
The phased campus for semiconductor research includes Office, Laboratory, Hotel and Convention buildings. Team included Interface Engineering, HDR, Inc. and Xian Dai (local design bureau) with whom I worked closely in Portland and Shanghai to develop advanced sustainable systems for the project, including ice storage, ground water loop, PV and solar hot water energy saving systems. Targeted to become the first LEED Platinum project in China, and the world's largest LEED project by area, the development will make use of advanced engineering strategies and integrated sustainable site design. My knowledge supported the owner's desire to be a pioneer in a burgeoning green movement in China.
· Designed and prepared winning proposal for commission in competion with sustainability leaders from Germany and Japan.
· Developed high–level eco–industrial development planning principles encompassing LEED ND infrastructure and land use policies.
· Identified and resolved differences in regulatory, cultural and practical design standards as well those affecting Chinese and American design team coordination.
