Carol Serves as Keynote Speaker at Cecobois Conference

MTA Partner Carol Phillips was the Keynote Speaker at the 2024 Cecobois Conference and Low Carbon and Bio-Based Construction Forum in Quebec City earlier this month!

Carol delivered a talk entitled “Limberlost Place – Changing Culture on Toronto’s Waterfront” on our 10-storey, mass timber, net-zero carbon emissions, post-secondary building designed with Acton Ostry Architects currently underway at George Brown College. Limberlost Place stands as a model for innovative design and construction in Ontario, Canada, and quite possibly worldwide – from the approvals process, structural design, and sustainable metrics for an institutional project. She also spoke about our other mass timber project, the soon-to-be-completed Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) Headquarters Building, as well as our firm’s mission to further the advancement of this sustainable structural material option.

“It was an honour to speak to the international gathering of experts at the 2024 Cecobois Conference to share and exchange knowledge on the transformative potential of mass timber to decarbonize the design and construction industry.”

Carol was joined and supported by MTA Partner Emmanuelle van Rutten (pictured). Thank you to everyone who attended and to all event organizers.
