On May 19, 2012, Shanghai Xian Dai Architectural Design (Group) Co., Ltd. (Xian Dai) celebrated its 60th anniversary.
Over the last six decades, Xian Dai has endured and overcome formidable challenges while implementing engineering and construction projects across the whole of China. Spanning now generations of unprecedented and rapid change in the country, Xian Dai has inscribed a glorious chapter of urban and rural construction in the nation’s development.
For over 60 years, Xian Dai has fulfilled its mission, courageously developed and expanded its market, all the while advancing the cause of China’s national urban and rural construction. Xian Dai has successfully completed engineering projects across 29 separate provinces in China and throughout more than 20 different countries, and made great contributions to the development of the People’s Republic of China. Looking back on the past 60 years, such accomplishments remain fresh in our memory and fill all involved with the Group with a strong sense of pride and enthusiasm for future endeavors.
For Xian Dai, 60 years has meant continuous and extensive reform, rapid transformation and groundbreaking innovation. We have always upheld reform and innovation as the driving forces of Xian Dai’s development.Meanwhile, several of Xian Dai’s design and research projects have been recognized as important firsts in Shanghai and China, with significant impact on the rise and growth of the whole industry nationwide.
For Xian Dai, 60 years has meant developing core competencies, invigorating the enterprise with scientific and technological progress, while concurrently strengthening it with an extremely strong base of talented people. Engineering design and consulting depends largely on technological innovation, and a qualified and competent workforce, thus Xian Dai's former leaders and pioneers always regarded technology and talent as the foundations for driving innovative development. Many architectural design masters have emerged from Xian Dai, making outstanding contributions to the construction industry with their intelligence, wisdom and patriotism.
For Xian Dai, 60 years has meant shouldering social responsibilities, expanding its development alongside that of the country and participating in its shared destiny. As one of New China's oldest architectural design firms, we always put the needs of the country and the needs of social and economic development first, fulfilling Xian Dai’s duties to the country's urban and rural construction.
History inspires the future, glory begets strength, and mission motivates progress. Looking to the future, new opportunities and challenges endow Xian Dai with a new mission and obligation. With our historical heritage, Xian Dai faces the calling of a new era and stands at a new crossroads to overcome the important challenges ahead. Faced with more arduous tasks, we have clearer goals and stronger conviction. We must seize the opportunity for continuous development and deepen the reform of institutional mechanisms; adhere to drive with innovation and speed up transformative development; focus our development strategy and implement Xian Dai’s new five-year plan vigorously in order to make Xian Dai one of the top 100 global engineering consulting firms operating under international norms and standards. We should strive to achieve new breakthroughs in the enterprise's reform and development, assume new responsibilities in national urban and rural construction, and make new contributions to the development of the architectural design industry!
