Wood WORKS! BC is pleased to announce completion of its latest case study on industrial buildings. Mass timber is making its mark on the residential and commercial sectors, and is now making inroads into a new sector which has long been dominated by concrete tilt-up and steel-frame construction – industrial buildings.
This case study examines three recently completed industrial buildings in BC, each of which uses engineered mass timber products and systems in a distinct and different way. Together they offer insights into how industrial construction might evolve to offer greater environmental performance, speed and flexibility of construction at little additional cost over traditional methods.
