28 December, 2020
The main structure is now complete at SANY Global Construction Machinery R&D Center in Kunshan, China, with the top sealing works done. When completed, it will be one of the largest single R&D building in China.
The campus, designed by world-famous architect Colin Franzen, covering a total floor area of 1.1 million square feet with administration, laboratory and new R&D functions, will accommodate 5,000+ employees. “Creatively, the single building is naturally divided into three functional areas by its shape, which resembles the logo of the company ... and we blur the boundary between workspace and landscape, which I believe is the most cutting-edge and imaginative architectural design for construction machinery companies in China”, said Colin.
The landmark building will become a nest for SANY’s future intellectual and advanced machinery prototype. Specifically, the center will integrate exploring, prototyping, testing, and showcasing SANY’s next generation excavators. Being one of the company's most important projects under construction, SANY Global Construction Machinery R&D Center will strengthen corporate competitiveness by means of developing state-of-the-art technologies for construction and earthmoving machinery.According to Zhang Weifeng, the project leader, the project is expected to be completed by September 2021, and will create a work space with an 'unprecedented and thrilling’ experience.
