Woodin Mass Timber Office Prototype

Pushing the limits of wood construction, this Waterloo based office project will be a testing ground for new low-rise mass timber systems.


Location

Waterloo, Ontario

Project Type

New Construction

Occupancy

Office

Area

30,000 sf


Proposed for a prominent site in Waterloo, ON, this three-storey building is designed as a repeatable prototype for low rise commercial office construction using mass timber structural elements. Featuring high ceilings, open floor plates, and expansive glazing the prototype aims to deliver the spatial and aesthetic qualities expected by Class A office tenants using an innovative wood structural system comprised of glued-laminated timber beams and columns and long span cross-laminated timber floors to achieve optimal efficiency, flexibility, and beauty. This project has received support and funding from Natural Resource Canada's Green Construction through Wood Program.
