Mass timber construction is being talked about more and more as we shift toward a greener, more ecologically-minded, building industry. This article entitled “2022 Design Trend of the Year: Mass Timber” describes how and why this transition is occurring, and what it means for future innovations in the way we as architects, engineers, and developers consider construction projects.
Limberlost Place, our project with Acton Ostry Architects and PCL Construction, is referenced as a leading example of mid-rise, mass timber, architecture. Currently under construction at George Brown College, Limberlost Place is the first building of its kind to be constructed in Ontario, in Canada, and perhaps the world.
“Limberlost is unique because it’s the first 10-storey assembly-occupancy mass timber building for Toronto … Few taller mass timber structures are used for this type of occupancy.”
– Robert Jackson, Fast + Epp Structural Engineers
