As one of the comprehensive architectural design institutes enjoying a long reputation in China, we have mainly undertaken various kinds of public and civil architectural engineering designs, urban designs, the planning of residential areas and dwelling designs, preparation of overall and special urban plans, preparation of detailed plans, protection and restoration of ancient buildings, landscape gardens, indoor designs, inspection and reinforcement, early-stage feasibility study and architectural programming study, and engineering consulting.
In recent years, our Institute has won over 300 national, provincial and ministerial excellent design awards for the projects we have designed and completed, ranking in the front among nationwide Class A institutes. In scientific research, we have completed the design of the buildings for China’s Zhongshan Station, Great Wall Station and Kunlun Station at the South Pole; taken charge of and participated in the preparation of many national, local and industrial standards; and obtained the invention patent for the research subject of light steel framework shear wall structure system. The TUS engineering design software independently developed by our Institute has passed national accreditation. Academically, we have edited Volume 2 of Architectural Design Data Collection and participated in the compilation of the Terminology of Architecture. As the platform for production, learning and research, we have set up the base for joint cultivation of professional degree postgraduates with the Ministry of Education since 2011. In management, we have obtained the QMS certificates of CNAS and UKAS.
