The University of Hawaii at Manoa’s School of Architecture is joining forces with the China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) — the country’s largest international design and construction firm, according to a UH press release.
The company is known for constructing 80 percent of buildings 30 stories or higher in China, the announcement says.
The university and CSEC on Tuesday signed a “Memorandum of Understanding,” marking their commitment to working together on design, sustainability and urbanization issues.
The partnership will create opportunities for the two entities to focus on present and future needs in natural and built environments, including joint research, training, and faculty and staff exchange. In addition, the UH Manoa School of Architecture will be responsible for designing and offering professional workshops and seminars to the CSCEC on a regular basis, slated to begin later this year.
