This structure was an innovative use of cross-laminated timber panels. The CLT panels were shaped for maximum efficiency, with multiple components cut from standard rectangular panels with minimal waste. The CLT also forms partitions and millwork and incorporates distinctive BC beetle kill pine and BC Engleman spruce.
