The building is constructed by the office park and hand over to Nanjing Yangtze River Urban Architectural Design CO., LTD (The owner) for decoration. During construction, the owner proposed an optimized layout and structural system, from frame-core structure to frame-buckling-restrained bracing (BRB) structure. Meanwhile, the core tube is relocated from the central to the north. The optimization provides more flexibility on the layout, increasing space utilization efficiency by 5.3%. Also it reduces concrete of 1177.24m³ and steel of 125.25 tons, equivalent to 1789 tons of CO2 emissions.

Considering surrounding obstructions, the offices with highest day-lighting demand are located on the east and south side, while conference rooms with second-highest demand are located on the west side. Noise sources, such as AC units and elevators, are placed on the north side away from offices, using stairways and corridors as acoustic barriers. In addition, is uses open plan layout which is more beneficial for natural ventilation comparing to central core layout. During transitional seasons, the doors of AC units platform on the north will be allowed to open on the purpose of promoting ventilation. All above strategies improve natural ventilation and lighting performances and reduce noises, which is an implementation of passive and low-carbon design.

The building is the first office building with scale application of assembled decoration and skeleton-infill construction in Jiangsu Province. 80% of the walls use lightweight steel keel partitions and modular wall panels with decorative finishes. 75% of the floors adopt an elevated floor system. Pipelines are separated from the structure in 80% areas. Construction period reduces by 30% by using standardized components. The building saves more than 1400m3 of cement mortar by using dry construction compared to wet construction, equivalent to 421 tons of CO2 emissions. Moreover, the owner commits to an environmental-friendly decoration with no natural stone or timber materials.

The project emphasizes human-centered design, creating a healthy and comfortable environment for all users. It encourages healthy lifestyles and achieves a dynamic balance between energy conservation, environment protection, health and comfort through a series of technologies, such as haze-removing outside air systems, online monitoring of air and water quality, segregated water supply, light tubes, multi-level vertical greening, ergonomic furniture, smart dining facilities (including nutrient analysis), and maternal and child care.
