Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon provides a ‘home away from home’ for 73 out-of-town families whose children are receiving treatment for serious illnesses at the BC Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Cross-laminted timber (CLT) was used in the project, along with a light wood floor system. Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is the first project in North America to use this hybrid construction method in a tilt-up format. Construction involved laying out a series of CLT panels on the ground, each pre-fitted with ledgers to support floor joists as necessary. These panels were then tilted into place and stabilized until the horizontal structure is installed.
Throughout the process of working with Structurlam we've been very satisfied with the service they've provided and the performance of the CLT. We've also been pleased that we were able to stay well ahead of schedule.Matthew McKay, Director, Development AIBC – Affiliate, DB Services, Victoria, B.C.
