The Yantong Demo Project in Changzhou jointly built by Canada Wood China and Shanghai Matechstone Co. has won the “International Cooperation of Shanghai Prefabrication Technology” award at the Shanghai Prefabrication Innovation Forum on July 26.

The demo project of wood/concrete hybrid infill wall construction, the first hybrid building in China that constructed with precast concrete and prefabricated wood infill walls, demonstrates the advantages of wood and concrete materials when used together, boosts construction efficiency and reduces costs.

Recognition of the demo project paves a way for others to follow in the market.

The project was completed earlier this year.
