Wood frame construction technical expertise provided to China’s largest developers

With technical support from FII China and CWG, Vanke, China’s largest developer, completed another significant wood frame project in the city of Qingdao. The one-storey 1,800-square-meter heavy timber structure will serve as a visitor center and sales office for Vanke’s latest development in the city. The building consists of a heavy timber glulam structure with curved 2x6 roof panels. Both the project’s wood frame builder and its structural engineering firm are based in Canada. All of the wood materials including glulam, J-grade SPF lumber and plywood were sourced from Canada.
