16.08.2009-22.08.2009г. International Construction Forum in China

In august 2009 Russian delegation visited Shanghai.

Visit to China was timed to the implementation of Shanghai international exhibition of construction materials and decoration that took place in Shanghai New International Expo Center in the period from 18 to 21 August 2009.

Lately the range of construction and decoration materials wins more and more popularity in the world, that is why 40 000 square metres of showrooms were devoted to the biggest manufacturers and suppliers of China. The exhibition was divided into separate parts in order to identify the location of the companies, presenting their production. Separate sectors were devoted to the newest construction materials.

Practically every specialist could construct a virtual building with the usage of materials, equipment, methods of mechanization presented on the exhibition. The exhibition provided dozens of means of constructing foundation, wide range of modern materials, installing communications and life support systems.

Participants of the Forum noted that many technologies came to China from the most advanced world manufacturers. The ability to start mass-production with usage of new technologies is one of the excellent peculiarities of Chinese businessmen.

In China not only the large scale of construction but also a perfection of engineering thought can be sensed. More and more often delegates of the International Construction Forum started using in their vocabulary the word combination УSmart cityФ. This is not only urbanization, but also a life support system of the huge megalopolis with its citizens, road traffic participants, domestic waste, social services, police stations, fire stations e.t.c.

According to our delegates Shanghai is an illustrative example of the ideal model of space organization in populous cities. Every square decimetre is used rationally and in harmony with the nature and environment. Chinese constructors, while showing the city, commented the procedures of constructing that were used and the building materials and technologies that were taken as a basis.

In conclusion of the visit our delegation passed wonderful hours of recreation in the fantastic whirl of cultures in the crowded streets, in mysterious nooks of exotic parks to the accompaniment of breaking waves and multilingual tints of voices.
