One of China's oldest Web portals has a new home in the Chinese capital city.
Sina's new headquarters building has completed construction. Located in Zhongguancun Software Park, the new Sina building covers an area of 2.9 hectares, with a total construction area of about 132,200 square meters and an investment of about CNY1.5 billion. The building, which has six floors above ground and three floors underground, provides working areas, employee lounges, a gym, restaurants, and parking spaces.
The design of the building represents the low-carbon and energy-saving ideas the company hoes to espouse. It has a customized PM2.5 filtering system in addition to functions like air filter, UV disinfection, and automatic air volume control to help employees stay healthy while surrounded by Beijing sometimes-poisonous pollution.
In addition, the new Sina building has a rainwater recovery system and a solar heated water system, which significantly improves resource usage. The combination of glass curtained wall and blinds can meet the environmental protection and energy saving demands of the company.
Sina will gradually move its administrative offices, information technology center, and supporting management facilities to the new office building in the coming months.
