At present, the traditional construction industry suffers from low technological design and common problems relevant to "high energy consumption, high pollution and high noise". The future trend will involve more environmentally friendly low-carbon housing. New Prefabricated Concrete (NPC) structure technology means industrialized manufacturing of beams and slabs, wall posts, balconies and other components, and then direct installation in the construction site. Besides the advantages of safety and reliability coming from seismic test results compared with conventional cast structures, the NPC system has better carrying capacity, and basically the same level of stiffness, ductility and better capacity to withstand urban seismic risks. The advantages of energy-saving, emission reduction and consumption decrease help to reduce water consumption by 63%per square meter, 87% templates, 91% waste output, and nearly 68% noise. After the technical system of large-scale production is established, the whole project cost will fall by 10% per cent, and will revolutionize the traditional construction site, enabling 24-hour construction, reducing labor intensity nearly by half, shortening nearly one-third of construction time with overall assembly rate at 90% or more. Zhangnan NPC project has been proven successful in Zhongnan Century City of Haimen city for buildings No. 33 and .No.36.

Along the street lie pedestrian seats, beam lights, flower pools and statuettes, which bring people changeable views on moving steps. Walking through the zig-zagging commercial malls surrounded by flowers and plants, visitors cannot help but think of the poem written by Du Fu in Tang dynasty – “Strolling alone along the river for flowers”:
“Around Mrs. Huang’s house all sorts of flowers grow,
Thousands of petals press the twigs and branches low.
Flitting and Flirting butterflies dance up and down,
Carefree and charming orioles warble in a lively flow.”
