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.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
