HDR opened a new office in Beijing, China. The office, which is located in the Yintai Center in the heart of Beijing’s Central Business District, will support HDR’s design efforts throughout Asia. The Beijing office is HDR’s second location in China; the firm’s other office is in Shanghai.

“Beijing is the political, cultural and educational epicenter of China,” said Harold Nesland, HDR's director of Asia Pacific development. “Our clients in Beijing are pushing the fields of science, research and health in new and revolutionary directions, and we’re looking forward to helping them reach their goals as a local firm.”

HDR began its presence in China more than six years ago and has since designed more than 20 healthcare, corporate, and science and technology buildings throughout the country. Most notably, HDR completed the conceptual master plan for the Beijing International Medical Center. When complete, the medical center will be three-fourths the size of Manhattan Island and the largest medical center in the world. Other notable projects include the China Resources Daxing Biomedical Park and the National Institute of Biological Sciences building in Beijing; the Roche Shanghai Headquarters and the FMC Asia Innovation Center in Shanghai; and Nanjing University’s College of Engineering building and the Children's Hospital of Soochow University in the Jiangsu Province. +
