Dream Home Canada Demonstration Centre

The initial centerpiece of FII China’s program is the Dream Home Canada (DHC) Demonstration Centre in Shanghai. The DHC serves not only as a showcase for British Columbia wood products and construction technology; it is also the consolidated home offices of FII China and the Canada Wood Group. Visitors to the DHC can tour the structure and learn more about wood frame technology, the benefits of building and landscaping with wood, manufacturing processes, and the different wood materials. Since its founding in 2005, the DHC has drawn over 10,000 visitors. Through the DHC, Chinese visitors can enjoy the beauty, warmth, and functionality of British Columbia’s wood products and technology. The DHC has a floor area of 888 square meters and is an example of a heavy timber structure.
