New Tall Wood Buildings Demonstration Program – Green Construction Through Wood (GCWood)

New Tall Wood Buildings Demonstration Program – Green Construction Through Wood (GCWood)
If you missed the last Tall wood EOI deadline, there is now another opportunity for you to apply!

The previous Expression of Interest for tall wood buildings resulted in the successful completion of the world’s tallest hybrid wood building, Brock Commons Tallwood House, an 18-storey student residence at the University of British Columbia and a 13 storey residential complex (Origine) in Quebec City. Building upon this success, GCWood will provide funding to assist Canadian developers, builders, designers and construction experts to recognize the potential for tall wood construction. 

An opportunity to lead the pack on wood design! Be the first in Alberta to reach new heights with wood construction.

The objective of GCWood is to identify building project(s) in the concept, schematic or design development stages, within Canada, which safely and successfully demonstrate the use of wood as a viable structural element/system in buildings of 10-storeys and more.

Above and beyond the safety, environmental and economic benefits of wood, the demonstration project(s) will push designers, builders and manufacturers to further refine the specification and use of structural wood products - ultimately expanding upon the opportunity for new market development.

The deadline for submissions to the GCWood EOI is December 6th, 2017. To learn more, please visit www.gcwood.ca or e-mail nrcan.gcwood-cvbois.rncan@canada.ca.
