Project background

The Center for Exceptional Children was created through an international collaboration of SIMC lead
experts and partners from Switzerland and China. The SIMC team assembled the experts and worked
with them to adapt the concept of care to the needs of Chinese children and families. On behalf of its
clients, SIMC managed the project from conception to delivery leveraging its operations and teams
in Switzerland and China.

The project is roughly 72.5 mu with a building area of 60,000 square meters,
and a capacity for 500 resident guests and students.
By the end of 2021, SIMC and its CEC project team has accomplished its mandate
to initiate this pioneer pilot project with great compliment.
Since then, the center is under the autonomous management of the CEC team.
