Under China’s broad agenda to promote ecological development, building energy efficiency remains a key task for construction industry to implement in recent years. Accordingly, Canada Wood has re-calibrated messages to convey the benefits of Wood Frame Construction (WFC) in adapting to China’s energy efficiency requirement, and explored commercial demonstration opportunities to showcase WFC’s insulation properties.

The event also provides another opportunity for FII/Canada Wood to strengthen cooperation with CABEE and expand the industry network.
