RESET is proud to announce the achievement of RESET Air Certification (Core & Shell, v2.0) for Crystal Plaza T7.

Developed by Tishman Speyer, Crystal Plaza is a mixed-use development, consisting of international Grade-A offices, exclusive residences and quality retail amenities located in the heart of the New Bund, an emerging business center in Pudong, Shanghai.

Tishman Speyer is a leading owner, developer, operator and fund manager of first-class real estate around the world, founded in 1978. As a pioneer in sustainability, Tishman Speyer was the first to adopt RESET Air Core & Shell Certification (v1.0) at The Springs, a residential, commercial and retail complex, in Shanghai in 2016.

Tishman Speyer’s dedication to indoor environmental health continues with its second RESET Core & Shell project at Crystal Plaza. Currently, Crystal Plaza T1, T2, T5, T6 and T7 have deployed RESET Accredited in-duct air quality monitors according to RESET Air requirements. Of which, Crystal Plaza T5 and T7 has been awarded with RESET Air Certification on April and September 2020 separately.

Throughout the required three-month data audit phase, the project had to demonstrate the ability to maintain IAQ within the thresholds required by the RESET standard. Additionally, the project must maintain these thresholds in order to keep its certification status. Air quality data is collected via air quality monitors and evaluated daily by the RESET Assessment Cloud. Air quality indicators and thresholds include:
