3.Work Focus

(1)Architectural design

The urban design is already completed for this project, and this architectural scheme design needs to combine with the technical conditions (fire protection, municipal utilities and transportation) of the existing/proposed projects within the project coordinative scope, and implement the urban design concept with sufficient site specificity.

(2)Landscape design

Consider both feasibility and flexibility of functional expansion of combining Guiwan Coastal Park and Central Axis of Urban Living Room with the architectural design, organic integration of landscape and architecture, ensure the urban landscape continuity, and set up key public space nodes combined with architectural design.

(3)Cooperation for regional transport study

Give full analysis on the pedestrian flow and vehicle flow of different land parcels and urban roads within the project design scope and coordinative scope, incorporate them into the project architectural design, ensure the rational circulation of the urban transport (inter-city railway, metro and public transport), meet the building skywalk connectivity of different land parcels and smooth urban transport, and comprehensively improve the positioning of the regional urban garden, urban plaza, and urban living room.

(4)Rational and feasible structure

This project involves project plots with different extents of development, the site and surrounding plots are complicated, so the schematic design shall make sure the structural technology is advanced, rational and feasible.

Work Challenges

1.The winner of this project shall give construction guidance as the consultant from the scheme stage till the construction completion, have joint working capability of large-span structure and urban transport study, and make full-process control on the implementation quality of the landscape. It can subcontract the landscape design and structure consultancy after the bid award or jointly bid in the form of consortium, but the bid winner is the main coordinator and primary responsible party.

2. The project involves land parcels of different developers, with different construction timing, so the winner needs to take full initiative and play the coordination role of different areas properly.
