    China is s faced with a heavy pollution issue while industrialization process. Millions of manufacture factories had been built every year discharging waste water, exhaust gas and useless solid material. Construction industry as one major polluted source was focused by China government more and more. Green building solution was encouraged to use for all types of building in last five years. But finally only 1% manufacture plant had been built following green label standard due to less of incentive policy and self-motivation. Most plant owners who are facing severe competition and survive pressure in China market do not willing to spend money and time for environment protection.

    This paper summarizes a case study on an industrial project in China. Buildings in this project obtained both China 3 stars Green Building Label and US LEED Platinum (office) & Gold (factory) Certificate. The author involved in whole practice wishes to share experience from planning, design, construction, commissioning to operation process. Base on characteristics of factory building, an appropriate green building developed strategy is evidently helpful for green practice to balance performance, investment and payback period.
