LONDON - More than 100 UK companies have already lined up to be part of the Beijing Green Innovation Park, said a senior director involved in the project.

The park will feature a "village" of demonstration homes showcasing innovations such as low carbon and resource efficient technologies.

It is the brainchild of the Building Research Establishment of the UK and Chinese real estate developer Vanke.

"More than 100 UK enterprises have shown their interest in the project, including some top global companies," said Jaya Skandamoorthy, director of enterprise and innovation for the Building Research Establishment, an independent research-based consultancy, testing and training organization.

The 120,000-square-meter site in southwest Beijing's Fangshan district has been cleared and construction is expected to start in 2012.
