Hines began developing, investing and managing high quality real estate projects in China in 1995. One Museum Place in Shanghai is their latest project in China, which opened in March 2018.

RESET Air is the world’s first sensor-based, performance-driven building certification program where indoor air quality (IAQ) is monitored and measured in real-time. To achieve RESET Air Commercial Interior certification, the Hines Shanghai Office was required to consistently ensure that their IAQ, as calculated by the RESET Air Methodology for Data Analysis, met the Basic Performance criteria for 3 consecutive months:
Additionally, temperature and relative humidity must be continuously monitored although no specific thresholds are prescribed.

The office continues monitor its air quality throughout the year, in order to maintain its RESET accreditation. Further, as required by RESET, IAQ data will be reported to staff and occupants on a daily basis.
