District at Qingdao Sino-Chinese Ecopark received DGNB award

The Sino-German Ecopark District C2 in Qingdao, for which OBERMEYER primarily provided the deepening of the urban planning for traffic and ecological core-principles as well as the landscape design, was awarded the first "DGNB Urban District Certificate in Gold" in China by the German Council for Sustainable Buildings (DGNB).

OBERMEYER was contributing sustainable key strategies to achieve ecological as well as traffic design enhancements. Amongst others, the focus was on sustainable landscape design around the German Business Center.

Qingdao Sino-German Ecopark is a government cooperation project between China and Germany, which locates in the west coast of Jiaozhou Bay and in the north of Qingdao Development Zone.

The Ecopark, which will cover 72 square kilometers in its final development phase, is destined to become one of the most advanced ecological industry-parks in China. International companies from the ecology sector will settle there. This will create an eco-technology research and development area and a livable ecological demonstration zone.

Also other areas of the park excel by adopting proven German practices: the “C2 district” consists of energy-efficient passive house communities, generous open and green spaces as well as the largest DGNB “mixed-use building complex” in Asia. “Mixed-Use-Complex” is a certification category of DGNB. This building houses mostly offices, but also canteens, hotels and conference centers.

OBERMEYER has made a major contribution to realization of an ecologically harmonious, low CO2 and energy-efficient city of international significance. The planners focused on progressive key strategies and combined them with ecological landscape planning. It was essential to take into account the site conditions and the natural resources of the park.
