The Xian Jiaotong University Xixian Campus forms an important part of the China Western Innovation Port which is a national level legendary Sci -Tech project with over 17,200,000 SF of buildings. PBK and a local partner company formed a joint team and won the Design Bid competition and was assigned the 1,975,500 SF Complex 3, “Gongxing Hall” on the campus through the design and construction phases. The complex is keenly focused on leading-edge material science and engineering, electricity science and technology research in an interdisciplinary study approach. The facility was planned and designed before the research and faculty crew were hired. The Modular Lab concept was adopted featured by NexGen Learning Environment concepts such as Collaborative Flex with “White Room”, Research Collaboration Suites, etc. The newly occupied facility nationally has become a highly-sought after research center.
Working as a part of the International Project Management Consulting team (IPMC), PBK provided Owner’s Representative services including monitoring, quality control and evaluation consultancy related to the design and construction, as well as the provision of products and services for all phases of this enormous Health campus project.
