Sponge city is a key element of the eco-city concept under "new urbanization" system. Like the new urbanization, it is a concept of urban infrastructure construction associated with livelihood, society and urban development. It not only involves paying attention to urban ecosystems including irrigation and water conservancy, rivers and lakes, ecological wetlands, etc., but also plans industries, environment, water sources, water plants and other urban ecosystems as a whole. Meanwhile, it also gives consideration to urban water service, urban industries, municipal roads, landscape and gardens, urban regeneration and other urban life circles.
A sponge city extends upwards to connect with urban internal development and regeneration including urban functions and culture, extends downwards to connect with municipal and housing construction design, extends laterally to connect with finance, industries and operation, and is vertically supported by technology.
A sponge city involves characteristic compound industry clusters and base construction under the concept of life, production, living and ecology, including beauty, cultural creativity, health, tourism, characteristic agriculture, trade and logistics, etc., and is associated with the urban system planning business covering water environment, water industry, water ecology, water life and water culture, the design and engineering construction business related to urban design, integrated pipe gallery planning and design, municipal roads, landscape and gardens, reconstruction of sponge communities, etc.
The central working conference on urbanization requires respecting the law of urban development. Pan-China Group always holds a heart of awe in face of the complex macrosystem in sponge city construction. Based on the systematic thinking of industry-city integration and industry-financing combination, we jump out of pure sponge city construction to think about its existence and development from the perspective of a city and even a region. Specifically, we construct a sponge city development ecosystem comprising system incubator and project incubator, combining advanced concepts, technology, financial capital, industries and other core elements effectively, and incubate and construct sponge city projects in light of the characteristic requirements for city characters, so as to truly achieve the goal of sponge city development and construction.

Pan-China Group proposed the Sponge City 3.0 (Intelligence Industry Eco-city) on the basis of systematic theories about the innovation model of Chinese city development and in combination with the technology integration and practice of several projects. By organically combining intelligence, industry, ecology, environment, sponge, pipe gallery and other factors, Pan-China Group strives to give overall consideration to the development and construction of sponge cities from the perspective of city development management and operation by integrating technology, projects and services, so as to prevent talking about sponge city development and construction from a purely technical perspective and build itself into an investment operator and construction service provider of sponge city solutions.
The service system and implementation method of Pan-China sponge cities begin with top-level design, and aim to help cities identify demands, discover value and create value from the perspective of urban development. It encourages thinking about problems from Party A’s perspective, making strategic industry planning and investment & financing planning, and fully considering the factors in development economics, spatial economics and institutional economics. Guided by system thinking and in combination with development finance and PPP model innovation, the company strives to import commercial finance and structural finance to achieve financial breakthrough, build a structurized financial system, promote the infrastructure construction and urban development and construction based on the development philosophy of sponge cities and realize city value through operation management.
To truly realize the sustainable development of sponge city construction, Pan-China Group works actively to set up the "4+1" structural alliance, which will construct the sponge city alliance ecosphere in the following three dimensions.
I. Practice the innovative development model of new urbanization systematically and extensively based on the PPP model at state level from top-level design to intelligence, sponge, pipe gallery planning and design and investment and financing services.
II. Cooperate with project partners to build special economic and industrial bases for intelligence, sponge and pipe gallery, and make overall coordination from project planning, planning and design, PPP construction, project construction, investment promotion and operation.
III. Carry out cross-industry integration of the enterprises in sponge city industry chain, the planning and design organizations of smart sponge pipe galleries, investment institutions and special industries, set up the smart sponge eco-city development alliance, and construct an integrated platform for planning, design, investment, engineering and operation of sponge cities, so as to provide systematic and professional all-round services for sponge city construction.
