Rocky Ridge Recreational Facility is one of the largest projects in Western Canada to use the mass timber product, glue-laminated timber (Glulam). The 284,000 square foot building was designed to complement the surrounding landscape with its wave-like roof. Requiring almost two years to design and produce, the Rocky Ridge roof consists of 2,000 wood members, where no two are the same.

Featuring the world’s largest wood constructed roof in North America, the design reflects the various height requirements of each space, demonstrating the possibilities when it comes to building with mass timber.
