Construction starts on Shanghai Bund International Financial Centre, China

Construction has started on the Shanghai Bund International Financial Centre in China. Mott MacDonald is building services consultant for the development – by Shanghai Zandai Real Estate Company – which will be an important new business and entertainment hub in the city.

When completed, the project will total 420,000m2 of new build and include a hotel, cinema, central plaza and retail mall as well as two commercial towers. The centre will also be connected by a link bridge to the busy river pleasure boat plaza and will run adjacent to the many historic buildings along the city’s historic Bund waterfront area.

Mott MacDonald’s role on the project includes all building, mechanical, electrical, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and plumbing services, as well as vertical transportation. This includes design strategy and review at all stages, preparation of design specifications and construction stage supervision.

Sustainability is an important aspect in the construction of the centre, with the commercial towers being targeted to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification and the entire development being designed to achieve the China Green Building Energy Standard (GBES). At the same time, extensive basements are being included in the development’s design to maximise the value of above ground space. Building services will be located in the basements wherever possible to allow for green roof space and increased efficiency in lettable areas.

Mott MacDonald’s project manager Cheng Jie said: “This project is a great chance for Mott MacDonald to demonstrate its skills and knowledge in China. Through multinational co-operation with our buildings team in the UK we have really been able to add value for our client. It is further progress for our business in mainland China, where commercial developers are very active at this present time”.

The north plot of the Shanghai Bund International Financial Centre is due to be completed in 2014, with the south plot expected to be finished a year later in 2015.
