Execution & delivery strategy
Finally above the ground… Vermeiren China celebrates the completion of the piling and foundation works. Now looking forward to the realization of remaining 25.000 m2 building.
Bart Mahieu speaks at the Benelux Chamber of Commerce in the event “Making Shanghai’s new construction boom green”. The speech focuses on how to dramatically reduce heating and cooling consumption (and costs) for production buildings.
Ammeraal Beltech successfully moves into its 15.000 m2 large new facility. Waste heat, emitted from the production process is collected and then re-used trough the implementation of a heat recovery system. In winter, the collected heat is diverted into the floor heating system in the office, providing a Zero CO2 (and free of charge) heating. A roof garden provides with additional working comfort and doubles as an outdoor working space.
Jungheinrich opening ceremony was a most probably the warmest opening ceremony ever. Luckily, the state-of-the-art HVAC system did its work beautifully. 120 boreholes going 80m deep provide enough cooling power to create a comfortable working environment in the 38.000 m2 large building. This site can be a proud example for energy efficient cooling. Jungheinrich was awarded with LEED Silver for its office building.
Atlas Copco Completes its 25.000 m2 facility. The first test of the production test heat recovery is a great success. Electric waste heat from testing their assembled products is collected and provides heating AND cooling for the whole office building. The office building runs 100% on collected waste heat. .Click Here to see the drafts
Atlas Copco ground breaking ceremony had lots of attention. See the press report here or here. PLUS designed the main concept design for the total plant (25.000 m2) for this Swedish company. The office building shall apply for LEED Gold and is on track to win the Yang Zi Cup. The total heating and cooling energy for the office building is powered by recycled heat energy from the production. Click Here to see some first drafts
Schaeffler Suzhou finalized the construction works for its 22.000m2 plant in Suzhou New District. Plus did the construction follow-up in close collaboration with the Client.
VCST Changzhou finished the construction works on site. PLUS was involved in the quality control on site. The building runs with a green Eco system for heating and ventilation. This water-based system allows the client to reach the right temperatures with the minimum amount of energy input.
Rubi, a Catalan company, completed their facility in Suzhou. The project existed of a 10.000 m2 plant with office building, R&D lab and production block. Bridges connect all the buildings into 1 functional system.
A chocolate factory in China, named Eden Chocolates, was completed in Suzhou, China. This 9.000 m2 project groups cooling rooms, lab, production facility and office building on a tight plot of land. Building was awarded with the GuSu Cup award.
A factory with a roof garden. Morgan Crucibles stacks functions in order to save costs and puts the office and canteen on its roof landscape. Plus developped the concept, design management and construction quality control.
Fenchurch, a UK company, completed a 5000 m2 extension to the current building. Click Here to see this nice project. Plus was in charge of the concept design, the design management and on site control
Van De Wiele main building is completed. 12.300 m2 are constructed with a very tight budget. The project wins the Taihu cup for construction excellence.
