The International Tendering for Phase I Urban Design and Architectural Design General Contracting of Shenzhen Construction Industry Ecological & Intelligent Valley Headquarters Base, which is another municipal-level key industrial cluster project in Longgang District of Shenzhen City, is about to start! We sincerely invite the global design elites to follow the international trend of being green and low-carbon, and jointly participate in the 100 billion-level industrial cluster project!


Project Overview

In response to the national decision and deployment on the implementation of emission peak and carbon neutrality, to improve the efficiency of energy and resource utilization, promote the use of renewable energy, reduce the building carbon emissions, and create a good ecological environment for the construction industry, in accordance with the strategic deployment of the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government, to promote the high-quality development of Shenzhen’s modern buildings, form a new center of Shenzhen’s construction technology industry cluster, develop a new format for the entire industry chain of construction technology, use the “Belt and Road Initiative” as the engine to connect with the domestic and foreign construction markets, and establish a new benchmark for low-carbon construction technology development, the Shenzhen Construction Industry Ecological & Intelligent Valley Headquarters Base, established by the Longgang District People’s Government of Shenzhen Municipality, has come to its existence!

The Shenzhen Construction Industry Ecological & Intelligent Valley project aims at the world advanced construction concepts and technologies, takes green, low-carbon and digital intelligence as the main development direction, and focuses on the existing technological advantages to deploy three major industrial clusters of “intelligent construction”, “smart buildings” and “carbon neutral buildings”, and six centers of “corporate headquarters agglomeration, intelligent construction digital innovation, building standard formulation, green and low-carbon demonstration, smart building innovation, and technology exhibition and trading”, form a green and low-carbon city demonstration area, lead the future 100 billion-level construction industry cluster of Shenzhen City, and realize the transformation of the construction industry from production-oriented construction to green, intelligent and service-oriented intelligent construction.

Shenzhen Construction Industry Ecological & Intelligent Valley plans to develop and construct according to the “1+1” spatial layout model of “headquarters base” + “industrial base”, in which “headquarters base” is this tender project and the core component of the Ecological & Intelligent Valley, located in the middle of Universiade International Science and Education City, Longgang District, Shenzhen City.
