Duke Kunshan University, China

Duke Kunshan University is the first Chinese university campus to be certified by The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) campus programme, with all five campus buildings certified according to LEED standards by the US Green Building Council.

The LEED Gold certificate was awarded to its Academic Building and Conference Centre, while the Student Residence, Faculty Residence and Service Building received LEED Silver certification.

As the building sustainability consultants, we developed and integrated green solutions into the planning, design, construction and operation of the 67,790sqm campus buildings to reduce environmental impact at every stage of their life cycle.

We also provided third-party testing and commissioning services on the campus systems and equipment, including the HVAC, BMS, plumbing, firefighting, electrical, and extra-low voltage systems.

The energy-efficient and climate-responsive buildings were handed over to the client, in accordance to the university's stringent design requirements and safety specifications.
