The Green Construction through Wood (GCWood) program has officially launched its second Call for Expressions of Interest. Their focus for this round is on low-rise non-residential buildings (1-4 storeys) in the following categories: Commercial/Industrial (e.g., retail, warehouse, box-type, etc) and Office/Institutional (e.g. office building, school, health facilities, etc). Applications are due by December 3, 2018 at 17:00 EST. Find out more at: www.nrcan.gc.ca/gcwood
GCWood provides non-repayable contributions of up to 100% of a project’s eligible incremental costs for the demonstration of innovative mass timber products and systems. The funding is intended to offset the cost of being the “first mover” of wood-intensive projects, and to support the development of knowledge and tools to support the success of future projects.
