NEW! Case Study on Wood in Civic Buildings

Wood WORKS! BC is pleased to announce completion of its latest case study on civic buildings.

This case study examines two innovative wood buildings, both civic projects, that illustrate the value and versatility of wood, while increasing the demand for BC’s wood products and assisting with the significant impacts of climate change. The Radium Hot Springs Community Hall and Library, located in the East Kootenay village of Radium Hot Springs, showcases a wealth of local wood products and assemblies, most of which were sourced from within 100 miles of the site. The Fire Hall No. 5 in Vancouver maximizes utilization of city-owned land by including four storeys of social housing above the state-of-the-art fire station. Click here to view the new study:
