Xuhui District Roof Renovation Project

FII China has cooperated closely with the Shanghai Municipal Government to bring the advantages of wood frame construction to the general public through renovating old residential buildings. FII China’s first wood truss roof renovation demonstration project, located in Shanghai’s Xuhui District, introduced Canada-based technology for sloped roof construction using wood truss roofs. Completed in September 2006, the project was undertaken in partnership with the Shanghai Municipal Housing, Land and Administration Bureau, the Shanghai Science and Technology Committee, and the Xuhui District Government. The successful completion of the project proves that wood truss roof systems are a viable option for Shanghai’s roof renovation needs.
