Shanghai Housing Bureau visits Canada to learn about wood construction technology

In September 2015, a delegation from the Shanghai Housing Bureau visited Canada to learn more about wood-frame construction technology in public housing applications, particularly senior homes and schools. The mission exposed government officials to the infill wall systems and showcased its suitability for prefabrication, aligning with Chinese policy initiatives emphasizing this new construction method. The delegation also participated in the Global Buyers Mission in Whistler, where they were received by Minister Steve Thomson and FII CEO Michael Loseth.
