The German Center in Taicang, Jiangsu province has received gold certifications from DGNB and LEED, two standards for green architecture, Taicang Daily reported on Aug 29.

Designed to be green, healthy and sustainable, the center offers a comfortable working environment to its lessees.

The center hired a team of consultants to help it make sure the building met the stringent standards set by DGNB and LEED.

The materials the center has used in its interior are from a world-famous brand that has received green certifications in Germany. Its high-quality furniture, supplied by German and international suppliers, are low-emission, easy to assemble and clean, and comfortable to use.

The center's ventilation system contains a MERV15 filter system, which is capable of removing up to 95 percent of the PM2.5 particulates in the air inside the building.

Its lighting system consists of natural light and artificial lighting, helping workers feel alert and comfortable.

Many of the electric appliances in the center are fitted with motion or sound detection, helping to save energy.

The center also provides advice to its tenants on the materials and furniture could use in decorating their offices so as to make their office facilities more energy efficient.

The German Center occupies five floors, three floors of which have been put into use. The other two floors are set to be finished soon.
