Designed and executed by GSE
Air Liquide, the world leader in the chemical industry, entrusted GSE the design and construction of its new research and strategic development center based in Shanghai, China.
This highly technical installation of approximately 19 000 m² required the most attention in terms of optimization of interfaces between the process and the building in order to have no possible conflict during the start-up of these ones.
GSE was selected thanks to its architectural design which was the best, but also because of its proposals in terms of technical optimizations allowing Air Liquide to achieve an effective balance between its initial investment and its operation costs.
Moreover, a strong emphasis was placed on the environmental impact of this project in order to target LEED Gold Certifications and Chinese 2 stars.
Again, GSE has demonstrated its ability to secure investment of Air Liquide in terms of CAPEX, OPEX, environmental impact and schedule.
