Limberlost Place Bridge Featured by Archinect

We are thrilled to see Limberlost Place’s raised mass timber bridge included in this Archinect feature for World Engineering Day! The six bridges highlighted each exemplify innovative design standards and engineering practices, and in the case of Limberlost Place, using alternative, sustainable materials.

Designed by Moriyama Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects and hoisted into place in March of 2023 at George Brown College’s Waterfront Campus in Toronto, it is one of a select few fully mass timber bridges at height in North America (using no steel in its structural composition). The bridge was set at level 5 to align with the termination floor of the main feature stair inside Limberlost Place, serving as a pedestrian connection from the ground floor all the way up and into the neighbouring Daphne Cockwell building. Spanning 70 feet and weighing 70,000lbs, it was assembled on site over four days, and raised on the fifth.
