Corporate Avenue Phase II – Tower 2 receives LEED (Core and Shell)

Corporate Avenue Phase II – Tower 2 is part of the Corporate Avenue mixed-use development located in the heart of Shanghai, close to the vibrant Xintiandi area.

It was awarded a gold pre-certification under the LEED Core and Shell programme of the US Green Building Council.

As the designated quantity surveyor for the Shui On Land project, Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) offered a complete cycle of quantity surveying services. RLB also advised on the sustainability aspects of the project, through best practices and effective cost control.
