Industry professionals from Israel used the CTBUH 9th World Congress in Shanghai as a venue to announce the formation of a new Israel chapter.

The newly created Israel chapter of CTBUH gathered at the Shanghai Congress.

Forty-six people from Israel attended the Congress. The group shares the CTBUH goals of sharing information for strengthening the design and construction of tall buildings, said Gil Shenhav of Canaan Shenhav Architects, the CTBUH City Representative in Tel Aviv.

“We also want to get better connected with the international community,” he said.

Israel David of David Engineers is the CTBUH Country Representative for Israel.

The Israel chapter is the latest news in the fast-growing network of CTBUH representatives around the world. In addition to groups in Korea, Australia and Qatar, the six-month-old City Representative program now has 56 representatives in 25 cities.
