Ecosign completed the preliminary master plan design for the Beijing Organizing Committee’s official bid submission to the International Olympic Committee in January 2015. Ecosign provided the design rationale and methodology for the planning and layout for snow sports venues in Beijing (Yanqing County) and Zhangjiakou (Chongli County) for the venues and associated facilities for the “Snow Cluster” component of the Beijing bid.

The planning for the Beijing (Yanqing County) competition area covers competition venues for Alpine Skiing (Downhill, Super G, Super Combined, Giant Slalom and Slalom) and the Sliding Center for Bobsleigh, Luge and Skelton. An Athletes’ Village is also proposed in the Yanqing Competition Area to accommodate 1,300 athletes and officials. The Yanqing Competition Area is approximately 16 km² in area and lies about 70 kilometers northwest of the Beijing City Center.

The Zhangjiakou Competition Area covers an area of 66 km² and is situated 220 km northwest of Beijing City Center. The Zhangjiakou Competition Area includes the design of venues for Cross Country Skiing, Ski Jumping, Nordic Combined, Biathlon, Freestyle Skiing and Snowboard. The Freestyle Skiing and Snowboard venues will be located at Genting Secret Garden. The Zhangjiakou Competition Area includes an Athletes’ Village which can accommodate in excess of 3,000 Athletes and Officials, Media Centers and other functional facilities as required.
