Tongji Roof Renovation Project

The Shanghai Tongji University wood truss roof renovation project features a design developed cooperatively with Tongji University. The design was specifically created to demonstrate the potential of localizing wood truss roof renovation applications in China. The project also features a number of innovations such as the expansion of the truss span, and the application of wood parapets, to name just a few. Apart from being technically viable, the project also introduced cost saving measures into the system. This custom-built solution has become a successful model for present-day and future wood truss roof applications.
