Please join us on Wednesday April 12th at Urban Forum‘s next lecture at the Arts Court Theatre in Ottawa, focused on mass timber architecture!
The presentation will be on Limberlost Place, a project designed by Moriyama Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects Inc. under construction for Toronto’s George Brown College, poised to be one of the first assembly occupancy, tall, exposed mass timber, net-zero carbon emissions buildings in the world.
Project lead Carol Phillips will discuss the research and innovation that went into winning the international design competition, and the significant challenges associated with navigating the regulatory and approvals processes thereafter. Carol will discuss the project’s structural design testing and code approvals, funded by both the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Natural Resources Canada, in addition to the ambitious sustainability targets set forth by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto’s Planning and Development Department. Already the recipient of numerous awards for innovation and design excellence, Limberlost Place is set to open new doors for mass timber construction in Canada.
