1. Design scope
10 plots of Jinhua Central Innovation District (South Zone) Jinchuang Green Valley (the numbers of these 10 plots in the current regulatory plan are: ZX-30-07-08, ZX-30-07-09 , ZX-30-07-10, ZX-30-07-11, ZX-30-07-13, ZX-30-07-16, ZX-30-07-18, ZX-30-07-20, ZX -30-07-14, ZX-30-07-15), the specific information is as follows：
2. Competition stage
- The conceptual design of Jinchuang Green Valley: The total land area is about 235,000 square meters, and the total building area is 1,303, 640 square meters, of which the capacity area is 800,292 square meters, and the total underground space development area is 503,348 square meters (Note: the total underground space development area of Jinchuang Green Valley project is based on the balance of unit A-2 in the Underground Space Planning of Jinchuang Green Valley core area, including the underground area of plot ZX-30-07-12), including but not limited to the relevant strategies for determining the overall framework of superior planning connection, ecological environment, etc.; as well as the coordination of functional composition, the spatial layout of building groups, the creation of featured space, the optimization of the skyline, the street building interface, and the architectural style characteristics based on design research of meso and micro-scale urban style. According to the analysis of the business formats of Jinchuang Green Valley in the industrial planning, the plan layout of the main functions of the building is carried out to coordinate and unify the internal functions and external forms of the building.
- The architectural schematic design of Jinchuang Green Valley Phase I: Three towers with serial numbers of ZX-30-07-10, ZX-30-07-11, ZX-30-07-13 in the current regulatory plan (plots ④ , ③, ⑤): the total land area is about 43,000 square meters, the total capacity area is 202,000 square meters and the underground space area shall be balanced and planned according to the underground space planning of Jinchuang Green Valley Core Area.
- The design development content of the first-place winner: From the development design of Phase I architectural scheme to schematic design phase, the development should reach the depth of scheme construction application (architecture specialty reaches the depth of preliminary design), and cooperate with the Host in completing the scheme construction application work (Among them, the basement design shall be undertaken separately by the general control design agency). Subsequently, the first-place winner should cooperate with the preliminary design, construction drawing design and consultancy work in the construction phase. (For details, please refer to the Design Brief). If the first-place winner(consortium) does not have the project construction application qualification, it may independently entrust a domestic agency with the construction application qualifications to complete the construction application work.
