BBC INTERVIEWS SHANGHAI STUDIO

BBC INTERVIEWS SHANGHAI STUDIO News / Event / 25.09.2017

Studio leader Jack Qian was recently interviewed by journalist Ed butler of BBC World Service for a forthcoming story on China’s goals for sustainable urban development. The conversation covered a range of topics including the challenges and opportunities presented by the China market, the nuances in design culture between east and west and insights into the nation-wide sponge city program initially launched in 2015. Sponge Cities represent a major step forward in China’s sustainability ambitions to make sprawling urban landscapes more resilient to severe drought and flooding.

The scheme has generated a major shift in policy guidelines and attracted multi-billion dollar funding from the state with the aim of restoring blue infrastructure in cities damaged by rapid expansion of past decades. McGregor Coxall are recognised globally for delivering projects that encompass Sponge City initiatives.

In October, we’re delighted to host a Chinese delegation from the China Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) to tour some of our Sydney based water management projects including Ballast Point, Little Bay Cove and Blacktown Show Ground.
