On September 8, 2023, a significant development transpired as Wuxi Urban Construction Development Group and Canada Wood Group formally renewed a strategic cooperation memorandum at the Vancouver headquarters of Canada Wood Group. Witnessed by Mr. Fei Shaoyun, Party Secretary of Jiangsu Provincial Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, Mr. Tang Jinsong, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Wuxi Urban Development Group, and Mr. Bruce St. John, President of Canada Wood Group, signed the memorandum.This memorandum unites the two organizations with a shared focus on technological innovation and dual-carbon development, strategically aligned with China’s “dual-carbon” objectives. The collaboration’s core involves joint research and development efforts centered around localized standard systems and processes in the realm of prefabricated building technology, specifically emphasizing green building and wood structural products. The aim is to propel the growth and environmentally conscious transformation of modern wood structure construction, encompassing residential, commercial, and office sectors. This pivotal initiative will serve as a solid platform for future expansion within the Yangtze River Delta region and beyond.

This memorandum also marks an extension of our prior collaboration, exemplified by the joint creation of the “Wuxi Xuelang Town Data Innovation Center” project (below images). This Sino-Canadian modern wood structure demonstration, featuring a 2+3 story hybrid concrete and wood structure funded by Natural Resources Canada, brilliantly showcases the practical application and technical viability of Canadian wood and heavy wood structure construction technology in multi-story public buildings.

Wuxi Urban Development Group Co., Ltd., a state-owned enterprise based in Wuxi City, is a prominent player in investments, construction, and operations. The group specializes in urban development, renewal, rural revitalization, and ecological conservation. Notably, their leadership extends to innovative wood structure materials and green architecture, effectively driving the adoption of prefabricated wood structure construction in the market.
