The overall planning has been going on for some years. The next step is to, in detail, plan the part of the city which is situated on the east coast 250 km from Beijing. The area will become a so-called Sino-Swedish Demo Area to show sustainable design with Swedish models.
The agreement was signed during a visit by a delegation visiting from China led by Deputy Governor Mr. Song Enhua in Hebei province where Tangshan Bay is located.
- The assignment is further proof that the Swedish energy and environmental expertise is highly sought after in the Chinese market, said Stefan Cartling, regional manager at ÅF (BA Installation).
The work is performed in the Swedish Consortium of Architects & Engineers, SCA & E, where seven Swedish companies are included; Ahlqvist & Almqvist architects, AIX, Nyréns Architects, Sweco, Tengbom, Tyréns and ÅF.
The first part of the project is to plan the Sino-Swedish Innovation Island, an approximately 40-acre island where the ÅF Group's task is to develop energy solutions for buildings and assist in the planning of the overall technical infrastructure.
