The Wood Innovation and Design Centre (WIDC) is among the tallest wood buildings in North America. Standing at 96 feet tall, the building was constructed using a variety of locally manufactured solid engineered wood products including cross-laminated timber, glue-laminated timber, and laminated veneer lumber.
The WIDC features inventive use of wood solutions to solve every-day design and construction challenges. The WIDC showcases B.C.’s growing expertise in the design and construction of large-scale wood buildings.
The Structurlam team has been an instrumental part of the design and construction team bringing this project to fruition. Their team has gone beyond my expectations.Grant Newfield, BSc, MEng, P.Eng., Struct.Eng. | Principal, RJC, Vancouver, BC
