The standard and rules of green venues introduced by HAGOC, making the venue construction have rules to follow. Intelligent technology is extensively applied in the process of venue's construction. All the venues are equipped with various kinds of information systems to modernize and intelligentize the operational management.

Among these venues, 5 venues are temporary. In doing so, the costs of the construction and the risks of operation after the event are both reduced. Among 19 venues for the events in Asian Para Games, only 2 of them are for special use, other 17 are shared with Hangzhou 2022.
