With the changes of global environment and people’s increasing attention on health, “healthy building” has become one of the inevitable trends in the future. The sudden outbreak of the pandemic in 2020 further strengthened the claim of the concept. As a pioneer of China’s “Building Health”, Sino-Ocean Group has always upheld the strategic vision of being “the creator of healthy building and social value”, and took the lead in introducing the American WELL standard into China in 2015, implementing it in Sino-Ocean’s domestic projects. Currently, Sino-Ocean has more than 20 projects involving residential, commercial and office buildings with WELL certificate (including Gold and Platinum standards), becoming the company with the largest number of certified projects, covering the largest area in China. Besides, Sino-Ocean has 13 projects that have obtained Gold Precertification and 1 Silver Precertification. In addition to the American WELL standards, Sino-Ocean group has established a Health Building Research and Development Center, which is iteratively upgraded based on the practical data of 3,986 groups of nearly 70 projects across the country, and ultimately forming the “Sino-Ocean Healthy Building System 1.0” which is more suitable for the physical and mental health of Chinese people.
In order to create a future healthy residency that is aligned with the urban texture of Yangzhou, Sino-Ocean has conducted in-depth research on the urban environment of Yangzhou, and the work and lifestyle habits of the local people for the R&D and design of Yangzhou Grand Canal Milestone project. Based on a deep understanding of the city and its residences, Sino-Ocean started off from the Sino-Ocean Healthy Building System, and developed 4 major health dimensions which cover park planning, building units, interior décor, and health culture, implementing 62 health values and creating a full range of healthy residencies. Communal spaces such as a recreational club, a vegetable garden and a runway along the river, are rare in Yangzhou, providing multi-dimensional green services; ingenious craftsmanship such as the French Saint-Gobain formaldehyde decomposition gypsum board and front water processor are used for comprehensive health protection; quintessential apartment types of 109-125m2 have both comfort and practicality. Among them, the apartment types of 125m2 on higher levels are the only one-floor-one-family design in the Yangzhou market, creating a healthy and lively space.
With a residence experience that is most suited for the culture and habits of the Yangzhou people, the project conforms to the development direction of urban architecture, and adopts advanced architectural concepts and properties, refreshing the value standards of urban residencies, and leading the new trend of Yangzhou’s future green and health.
