Wood Innovation and Design CentreStructurlam Products LP congratulates the Province of British Columbia, the City of Prince George, the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC), PCL Construction and Michael Green Architecture in the opening of the tallest contemporary wood building in North America – the Wood Innovation and Design Centre. The all-wood structure will help BC push the boundaries of wood construction by housing educational programming to be set up by the UNBC, such as a Master of Engineering in Integrated Wood Design.

“Our team is very proud of this building. The structural package was entirely pre-fabricated using glue-laminated beams and our new cross-laminated panels at our plants in the South Okanagan. It’s a beautiful building that showcases the first new structural system for tall buildings in over 100 years.”
– Bill Downing, President, Structurlam Products LP.
