Mass Timber has arrived as an alternate structural material for all building types. Building codes across North America are being updated, acting as a catalyst for growth and cities will benefit from these highly sustainable and resilient structures. There are numerous reasons to choose mass timber over conventional building materials, including energy performance, speed of construction and marketability, but there are relatively few completed projects in major Canadian cities. Join ULI Toronto and our panel of experts for an exciting, wide-ranging conversation about what is presently possible and what the future has in store for mass timber in Canada.
