A Chinese camera team from Qingdao interviewed Wolfgang Frey in his architecture firm in Freiburg, Germany about his sustainable projects such as Heidelberg Village.
Freiburg, December 02, 2016 – Because of his experience and approach toward sustainable construction and social responsibility, Wolfgang Frey is an in demand consultant in China. A Chinese camera team from Qingdao recently interviewed Wolfgang Frey in his architecture firm in Freiburg, Germany. They continued filming at the Heidelberg Village construction site in Bahnstadt, a global role model for green buildings and modern urban development.
The journalists were also interested in learning more about the cooperation between Wolfgang Frey’s business group (Frey Group) and the Chinese partners at the Sino-German Eco-Park. The Sino-German Eco-Park in Qingdao is a flagship project that signifies Sino-German cooperation. In 2010 the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the Chinese trade ministry signed the Memorandum of Understanding to set a signal for positive Sino-German cooperation in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the then Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao.
In 2014 an agreement to develop Asia’s largest passive house project in the Sino-German Eco-Park was reached between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Chinese Minister President Li Keqiang. The Sino-German Eco-Park is one of the milestones for China’s path toward a sustainable future. It is the world’s largest project certified by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB e.V.) and will also house a so-called futuristic city by the Fraunhofer Institute.
The project will thereby gain significance on the global political stage regarding environmental, social, economic and trade issues. A cooperation between the Sino-German United Group Co. Ltd. (Administrative Committee for the Sino-German Eco-Park), Qingdao Jianan Group Co. Ltd. (an experienced general contractor for urban and infrastructure development) and the Frey Group will be responsible for implementing sustainable urban development concepts in China. For the next ten years, the project partners will be responsible for planning, managing and investing in the Sino-German Eco-Park. Wolfgang Frey along with the Frey Group will also continue to consult on further sustainable large-scale projects.
