China win for BDP
UK firm snags another master plan contract for PRC
UK firm BDP has snagged another design contract for a major government project in south China.
The firm, which recently opened offices in Abu Dhabi, has been appointed as master planner and designer for an urban regeneration project in the district of Sanshui, Foshan City.
The new project comes just weeks after BDP bagged the contract for developing part of a Medical University in Nanjing, and is one of a number of project the firm has underway in the PRC.
BDP will masterplan the new Cultural and Administration Centre for Sanshui and design the new cultural centre, library city archive, senior university, medical research building, laboratories, city exhibition hall and civic offices.
Stephen Gillham, director of architecture in BDP’s Manchester studio, stated “this is a significant win for BDP in China."
"This development will have clarity and permeability and will provide a recognisable symbol for the whole district.”
