The proposal of a new TPCA office establishment was agreed in a member meeting and approved by the government in March, 2005. It took NTD 25.96 million to buy the land area of 268 pings located at Dayuan Village. The budget of the NTD 100 million construction fee came from the TPCA surplus and industry donations. The ground-breaking ceremony was held on May 6, 2008, and the construction time was one year. The TPCA’s new office has 5 floors, with each floor having an area of 134 pings: the 1st floor is the TPCA exhibition hall and rental area; the 2nd floor is staff offices; the 3rd floor contains meeting rooms, research rooms and a lounge; the 4th floor contains training rooms; the 5th floor is a modern international conference hall with the capacity for 200 guests; and there are 11 parking spaces constructed in the basement. For the concern of increased sustainable development with regards to function, solar panels will be installed on the rooftop of the office building for environmental protection and energy-saving requirements.
