Summary

Résumé de la présentation

Join us on a two-part tour that will explore the advantages of timber construction.

The first stop is MEC’s head office, designed by Proscenium Architecture + Interiors Inc. They used innovative technology to minimize the building’s environmental footprint and provide an enhanced and healthy work environment for MEC’s employees. The heavy timber structure employs advanced lighting and air-control systems which coupled with a building envelope designed to maximize natural light; allows the structure to be 70 percent more energy efficient than a conventional office building. The building has achieved LEED Platinum certification.

We will continue to the StructureCraft shop in Abbotsford. StructureCraft Builders is an engineer-led construction firm specializing in timber and hybrid-timber structures; they have been engineering and building efficient, signature structures for architects, owners, and general contractors of North America and Asia for 20 years. They accomplish this by bringing the old-world tradition of Master-Craftsman to bear upon the new-world of high-tech construction. They are industry leaders in the “mass timber revolution” – answering the pressing need for increased quality and construction efficiency, at the same time reducing site erection time and risk.
