SHANGHAI—Diversified industrial manufacturing company Johnson Controls will open a China corporate headquarters in Shanghai Hongqiao Linkong Economic Zone.
The company says this new, state-of-the-art corporate campus will be a symbol of its commitment to “…a strong industry leadership presence in China.”
“As China continues to be one of the major growth markets for Johnson Controls, the new corporate headquarters in Shanghai will create a centralized and sustainable workplace to continue our business growth in China and the Asia Pacific region,” said Alex Molinaroli, vice chairman of Johnson Controls.
The design and construction of the new campus will achieve China’s Three Star Green and LEED Platinum building certifications. It will use multiple integrated building technologies that reduce the building’s water and energy use and be built from regionally manufactured materials.
Johnson expects a 48 per cent annual reduction in the building’s energy consumption over traditional building designs.
The 35,000 square-meter campus is to be completed by late 2016 and be home to more than 1,200 employees.
