Low Carbon Application —《Research and Application of Near Zero Carbon Operation Model》

Address: Houhai District, Nanshan District, Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, China
Project Site Area: 4,100.00 m2
Total Construction Area:61,200 m2

The China Overseas Group Headquarters Building, located in Houhai, Shenzhen, is the first 5A-grade near zero-energy high-rise office building in China. The Operations Department, Haibo Engineering, Haina Wanshang, and Xinghai IoT under COPL jointly participated in its intelligent construction project and jointly applied for the research and application of the "Study and Application of Near Zero Carbon Operation Model for Office Buildings based on the Headquarters Building of China Overseas Group".

As an integrated project of "China Overseas Design, China Overseas Construction, and China Overseas Operation", the China Overseas Building adheres to the important direction of green and low-carbon development. With the project as the foundation, it has achieved the target of near zero energy consumption for 5A-grade high-rise office buildings for the first time, exploring the technical route of zero carbon emissions for office buildings, which account for the highest proportion in public buildings, and providing successful experience for China's construction industry. The project has obtained the National Near Zero Energy Design Certification Healthy Three-Star Design Identification, Green Building Three-Star Pre-Certification, LEED Gold Pre-Certification, and WELL Pre-Certification. In 2022, it was selected as the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development's Zero Carbon Building Science and Technology Demonstration Project. In 2023, it was selected as a pilot project for ultra-low energy consumption buildings by the Guangdong Provincial Department of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the first batch of pilot projects for ultra-low energy consumption and (near) zero energy consumption buildings by the Shenzhen Housing and Construction Bureau.

The project aims to achieve near zero energy consumption buildings and utilizes 11 specialized designs including passive design, efficient energy systems, and renewable energy technologies to fully reduce building operational energy consumption. It has achieved a comprehensive energy saving rate of 61%, a body energy saving rate of 59%, and a renewable energy rate of 10%, meeting the requirements of the national standard "Technical Standard for Near Zero Energy Consumption Buildings".

Community Services — Haihui Community Canteen

The Haihui Community Canteen is a community canteen established by COPL in Youhao North Street, Shayibake District, Urumqi. It is also the first government-guided social service pilot project undertaken by COPL, representing an initiative to advance urban service work with meticulous care and benefit the community.

In planning the convenience life circle of Youhao North Street, Shayibake District, COPL conducted a survey to understand the proportion of permanent residents in the community and the residents' needs. The survey revealed that the shortcoming in the construction of the convenience circle was the lack of diversity in small restaurants, with a majority of the residents being middle-aged and elderly. Based on this, COPL began planning and constructing the community canteen to provide residents with breakfast, nutritious meals, and other supply services, making it convenient for community residents to enjoy clean, hygienic, and delicious meals within the life circle. The service covers more than 1,500 households and over 1,000 elderly residents.

Based on the "UN+" platform, COPL has established a complete supply system from ingredient procurement to food preparation for the community canteen. In addition, COPL, together with the Haihui Community Canteen, launched the "canteen dining + home delivery" service and set up a volunteer service team to provide reservation meal services through the "Assisted Meal Service Vehicle for the Elderly." Specifically targeting elderly residents with advanced age or limited mobility, free meal delivery services are provided. Since its opening, the average daily dining population has been nearly 180 people, with over 6,000 meal assistance services provided throughout the year.

Currently, the community canteens have been piloted in various areas. COPL will further improve the community canteen services, bringing convenience and warmth to the residents.

Community Upgrading — Haibo Smart Lighting

Haibo Engineering delved into the pain points of high energy consumption and management difficulties in property lighting systems. They keenly identified cutting-edge green and low-carbon products and used management needs to drive technological innovation. Through pilot testing and validation at 23 projects in cities such as Foshan, Shenzhen, Huizhou, and Shanghai, they completed a three-month tender process for centralized procurement of Haibo Smart Energy-saving Lights. They custom-tailored the Haibo Smart Lighting Solution, surpassing industry standards in luminous efficiency and leading in product performance and energy saving efficiency. Combining Internet of Things (IoT) technology, they built the Haibo Smart Lighting Cloud Platform, achieving deep integration of technological innovation and property management. These enhancements are targeting a 30% to 50% reduction in lighting energy consumption. This ambitious initiative is poised to deliver substantial benefits in energy conservation, elevate quality standards, and secure tangible energy savings, achieving a "triple win" in sustainability efforts.

4 Key Energy Management Benefits:
1. Enhancing underground brightness with lower energy consumption for higher resident satisfaction.
2. Adopting user-friendly Bluetooth Mesh wireless solutions, paired with software for varied applications.
3. Customised time, group, and zone controls to illuminate the path home for residents.
4. Achieving a tested energy-saving rate of 70%, reducing property management costs.
