Case Study | Chinese Technology Transfer: Adapting High Performance Wood-Frame Super-E Methodology to Townhouse Construction in North China

Canada Wood Group partnered with a major Chinese developer BSD-TEDA in Tianjin to build 100 wood-frame townhouses to meet Canadian ‘Super-E®’ ultra-low energy levels of performance. The three-storey townhouses covered 16,700 m2.

While a commercial project, the developer required outside expertise and support to execute enhanced construction techniques. Canada Wood supported the project to create a demonstration of wood systems achieving ultra-low energy conservation levels to encourage the Chinese government and the building industry to use more wood in construction.

Customer Perceptions of Canadian Forest Products

A study recently undertaken by Leger – the Research Intelligence Group asked international buyers of wood, pulp and paper in the United States, Europe and Asia about their perceptions of Canadian forest products and environmental issues. The results are comparable to a similar survey done by Leger two years ago. Once again the Canadian forest products industry is getting top marks when it comes to its environmental credentials. The customers surveyed said they appreciate our products because of their quality and sustainability, with the most positively perceived attributes related to assurance of legality and forest management practices. The majority of purchasers also said that forest certification is important when it comes to choosing forest products.
