NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China Advanced Construction Materials Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CADC) ("China ACM" or the "Company"), a provider of ready-mix concrete and related technical services in China, on February 26th, 2015, provided an update of the Company's ongoing key project, the China Zun Tower (also known as "CITIC Plaza" and "China Zun") in Beijing.
The China Zun Tower, (aka CITIC Plaza) is a supertall skyscraper under construction in the Central Business District of Beijing. The 108-story and 1,732-foot-tall building will become the tallest in Beijing once the construction completes, and its height will surpass that of the current tallest, China World Trade Center Tower III, by over 600 feet. The name of the building, China Zun, comes from "zun", an ancient Chinese wine vessel that inspired the building design, according to the developers and design firms, the CITIC Group and the Tower's design firms, Beijing Institute of Architecture and Design, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and Arup Group. More information of China Zun project is available at http://skyscrapercenter.com/building/zhongguo-zun/11116.
The Company has thoroughly participated in the development of China Zun from the beginning. Together with a few limited suppliers, the Company has been supplying various concrete materials and delivering related construction services at the project's ground breaking, foundation constructions, underground constructions, and aboveground developments.

The China Zun project constantly encounters formidable challenges during its development. For instance, its over-130-foot-deep foundation is among the deepest for modern skyscrapers in the world. In building this earthquake-resistant foundation, the Company once had delivered and pumped over half million cubic feet of concrete products in continuous batches with no pause.

Over the past couple of years, the Company had accumulatively supplied over 2 million cubic feet of concrete products for some major skyscraper projects in Beijing, and will continue to serve as one of the main suppliers for China Zun till the completion of the project in 2018. Once completed, The China Zun Tower will be home to the CITIC Group and the CITIC Bank's headquarter offices, several 6-star hotels, and feature certain high-end retail outlets. The total volume of concrete products supplied by the Company for the Central Business District of Beijing is expected to exceed 3 million cubic feet.
"Beijing is competing to become one of the cities with a new generation of skyscrapers in the world. Currently the three tallest skyscrapers are the 1110-foot-tall China World Trade Center Tower III, the 820-foot-tall Fortune Plaza and the 820-foot-tall Yintai Plaza. We have participated in the development of essentially all these landmark buildings," said Mr. Xianfu Han, Chairman and CEO of the Company, "and this will soon be lifted to a whole new level. As expected to become the new iconic landmark in the future Beijing, China Zun Tower will be the first skyscraper close to 2000 feet tall and subsequently lead to a wave of skyscraper constructions with similar heights within the area."
"We are honored and grateful to have the opportunity to serve China Zun," further commented by Mr. Han, "and we are committed to continuously contribute our environmentally-friendly concrete to China Zun and all the upcoming new skyscrapers in Beijing."
