Templar Flats Case Study

Templar Flats in Hamilton, Ontario, has the distinction of being the first occupied, modern wood-frame mid-rise building completed in Ontario. The 6-storey, mixed-use project offers 25 modern residential units above three street-level restaurants in the city’s downtown core. Templar Flats brings together the best of the old and new in an innovative, hybrid solution that puts a modern 6-storey building between two restored heritage buildings adapted into a single, unified development.

The 2015 Reference Guide: Mid-Rise Wood Construction in the Ontario Building Code

This free guide is based on a detailed code analysis and report completed by Morrison Hershfield for Ontario Wood WORKS!  This new reference tool goes through the new OBC provisions related to Mid-Rise and Combustible construction.  The intent of the tool is to help explain the provisions and provide the user with a better understanding of what is acceptable in Ontario.
