KPF’s new 392-meter-tall China Resources Headquarters in the center of Houhai Central Business District in Shenzhen will anchor the new China Resources Business District and fully integrate into its built environment through underground retail links to public transportation as well as pedestrian links to near Shenzhen Bay Park. This presentation provided a history of the landmark tower, and an introduction to the tower design process and consultant coordination. The focus then turned to the architect’s involvement during construction phases, including the rigorous visual mock-up and performance mock-up testing during construction administration. The presentation concluded with a discussion on the cutting edge construction technology applied to the tower to make the unique design possible. The objective for the presentation was to educate the participant on the intense coordination in design and construction phases and attention to detail required for a project of this scale.
