HK-UK Business Partnership

Sustainable by Design

Smart cities under construction on the Chinese mainland are building new business opportunities for Hong Kong-based contractors specialising in sustainable design.

Conceived as an industrial city, Shenzhen is now revamping its design as it transitions into a high-tech urban area. Hong Kong-based design consultancy Avoid Obvious Architects (AOA) is helping with the transformation after winning a contract to redesign the highways around Shenzhen’s Bao’an District, which is also being upgraded to a smart city.

“Shenzhen was originally planned in such a way that the highway is designed to facilitate trucks entering and exiting warehouses,” explained Vicky Chan, AOA Design Director.

“However, the old industrial areas have turned into new commercial zones, and 3D printer-assembling companies and companies providing related services have moved into the area. Therefore, there’s a need to reimagine the area as a smart city for living and work. Because of this, the Shenzhen Municipal Government has been regularly issuing new tender notices for mega-projects, creating countless business opportunities,” said Mr Chan.
