New project – LEED and GBL consultancy for an industrial player in Suzhou: RADICI Group

It is a pleasure to announce one of our new projects: Sustainability assistance for Radici new plant in Suzhou including LEED and GBDL certifications. This is a greenfield project of about 17,000 sqm, including workshop, warehouse and office area.

During the preliminary design stage, we conducted a Sustainability feasibility study which included studying energy efficiency strategies, some specific comfort topics for the workshop area and help the customer establish a LEED and GBL (China Green Building Label) scorecard and conduct related feasibility study. In this analysis, TERAO explained what were the required technical and financial efforts to implement Sustainability strategies on the project and reach the targeted certification levels: LEED Gold and GBDL 2 stars.

Besides the energy efficiency strategies (HVAC, lighting…), strategies such as rainwater management and solar PV have been introduced as the conditions of the site and the factory were favorable.

Following Radici decision to achieve a highly sustainable project, TERAO team has been carrying out the Sustainability Assistance and the LEED and GBDL consultancy missions.

According to Alberto Sessolo, Country manager at RadiciGroup, here is why RADICI has chosen TERAO:

“When our project in China was announced, TERAO contacted us to introduce their company and their expertise. Sustainability is a core topic for our Group and immediately we saw in TERAO a potential partner for our project. We were impressed by the expertise level of the Team and by their passion for all the topics around Sustainability, so we decided to work with them for our new investment”.

TERAO team will enhance the sustainability of the factory and warehouse buildings and the office part, through specific technical studies such as Energy modelling, Thermal comfort analysis, Solar PV feasibility etc.

Overall, these strategies will greatly reduce the factory energy, water and carbon footprint.
