Creating perfect places

We’re about what buildings make possible – and buildings make more possible than ever before

Buildings are responsible for 40 percent of global emissions. Making buildings more environmentally friendly would go a long way to creating a sustainable future for the planet. At the Sino-German Ecopark Passive House Technology Center in Qingdao, China, building management systems from Siemens demonstrate that practically zero-emission buildings are possible: and so is a bright future for the world.

A perfect place to minimize environmental impact

Passive House Technology Center: This building is a seed

13,768 square meters for uncompromising sustainability – that’s the Passive House Technology Center of Qingdao’s Sino-German Ecopark. A showroom, multifunctional meeting hall and various offices, meeting rooms and appartments demonstrate that protecting the environment does not mean compromising on comfort.

Passive House Technology Center is a building that’s perfect for the environment and the perfect living environment. This building is a seed.

Mr. Mao Shiqing, General Manager at Sino-German United Group Co.Ltd.
Everybody understands the need to protect what we've got. For us. For our kids. For their kids.

 

The Passive House Technolgy Center demonstrates that you can have a building that's perfect for the environment and the perfect living environment.

 

This building is a place where you can work, enjoy, live – and sleep at night. Because you know that whatever you're doing, you're doing no harm.

 

At the Passive House Technology Center, the building management platform Desigo CC uses 1,200 data points and 25 control cabinets to create perfect conditions. So people see what's possible.

 

This building allows us to care for the environment while still allowing us to live how we want. To create almost zero emissions while making zero compromises.

When it comes to building automation, sustainability is a matter of intelligence

Right from the beginning, Siemens was a part of supporting the development of the Passive House Technology Center. To meet the ambitious goal of gaining the Passive House Institute (PHI) certification and the 3-star certification of Green Building in China, a Siemens solution is key.

 

At the heart of this solution, the building management platform Desigo CC uses 1,200 data points and 25 cabinets containing several controllers each to provide the operating information for continuous monitoring and analysis of the buildings energy consumption.

 

As a demonstration center, the Passive House Technology Center has to integrate a multitude of subsystems into one single platform. The brain behind this solution is the building management platform Desigo CC. It builds a seamless connection between more than six different subsystems and ensures that they are perfectly coordinated. At the same time, Desigo Total Room Automation communicates with the Building information modeling (BIM) platform. This way, BIM is active throughout the entire building lifecycle. In combination with its more than 25 energy saving functions, the building management platform Desigo CC becomes vital to create a place that has minimum impact on the environment, but an enormous impact on how you live.

With the right technology, energy efficiency happens automatically

In addition, Desigo Total Room Automation (TRA) uses 15 sets of RoomOptiControl modules that allow people living and working in the building to adjust lighting and room climate precisely to their needs. Thanks to TRA’s intelligently linked efficiency function, the system automatically detects unnecessary energy consumption in the room and provides tips for optimum and efficient operation with the Green Leaf button – and turns the Passive House Technology Center into a showcase for efficiency and sustainability.
