Chetwoods has recently completed a masterplan for Wuhan International Eco-logistics Park in China for Gazeley. The 16km2 site is on an unprecedented scale for China and represents a new approach to logistics, delivering a ground-breaking multi-modal and multi-functional eco-logistics city powered by renewables.
The goals of the project include: An integrated low-carbon transport network; optimisation of natural capital; localised renewable energy (producing thermal and generating electrical); enriched communities; creation of industrial interdependence; delivery of economic viability.
Wuhan International Eco-logistics Park will create the environment for innovative industrial interdependence, adopting a commercially productive, socially beneficial, ecologically intelligent approach to the making of things. It will reflect the 5000-year tradition within Chinese agriculture that humanity can have a mutually beneficial relationship with the biological world.
