Construction of NCKU Green Building Kicked Off – MarketWatch

The blueprint of the most pioneering green building in National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) and also probably the first of its kind in the world, namely the Education Center for Subtropical Green Buildings (ECSGB) with an alias as “Green Magic School”, was recently approved by the City Urban Planning Committee of Tainan City in November, 2008, and simultaneously awarded by the Architecture and Building Research Institute of the Ministry of the Interior as a “Diamond Level Candidate for Green Building Labeling”. The detailed construction and design layout of this Green Magic School has been also completed on December 17th. Public tender on the construction work of the NCKU ECSGB is expected to be called around January of 2009 with an aim for completion of all construction work by 2010.
