LEO A DALY has been selected to carry out the second phase of China Mobile Ltd's international headquarters in Beijing in collaboration with Local Design Institute WDCE. Located on Plot B of the campus, the second phase will incorporate three buildings - two research and development office and laboratory buildings, and a public facility building - totalling 148,000 sq m of the full 1.3million sq m campus.
WDCE will be in charge of the interior design for everything but the main public spaces and will also take control of the engineering behind the design. LEO A DALY will conceptualise the exterior design of all three buildings and take on the interior design of the public spaces and landscape architecture. The cladding, materials and roofing of the facility incorporate a number of sustainable features, and are designed to meet Three Star Green Building standards (equivalent to LEED® Platinum criteria), the highest rating for sustainable buildings in China.
