The National Convention and Exhibition Center (Tianjin) project, undertaken by China Construction Eighth Engineering Division, recently reached an important milestone. The main structure for phase one have completed construction and testing, and the construction of phase two’s underground foundation is underway.
This project is located in Tianjin’s Jinnan district. It is China’s third largest international convention and exhibition center behind the two in Shanghai and Guangzhou. Upon completion, it will become the largest building of its type in northern China.
The project constitutes two phases. The first covers a total construction area of approximately 800,000 square meters, including 480,000 square meters of exhibition area and 320,000 square meters of integrated supporting area.
The total construction area of phase two is about 540,000 square meters. At present, the exhibition area and the supporting area of both phases are under construction concurrently.
In June 2021, the National Convention and Exhibition Center (Tianjin) will host its first event -- the China Building Science Conference and Green Intelligent Building Expo. The expo’s mission coincides with the construction project’s goal of setting a benchmark for green intelligent building in China.
