Wuxi Conference and Exhibition Center

Wuxi, China, 2011

In 2011 the new Conference and Exhibition Center Wuxi was completed at breathtaking speed. Constructed in two phases, two symmetrically identical, stwo storey halls with around 30,000 m² of exhibition area and complete basement for underground parking spaces (ca. 450 each) have been built. The roof structure consists of trussed girders with a span of 93 m and a cantilever of 11 m on each site. The design was characterised by an extremly short detailed design phase (requirement 6 months), why the chosen structure has been optimised for a short construction period.
