The most celebrated projects at Wood Design Awards


The most celebrated projects at Wood Design Awards
Innovative architectural and structural design in taller and larger mass timber buildings headlined the 2018 Wood Design Awards event at the Vancouver Convention Centre (West) yesterday. The 14th annual event honoured excellence in wood building and design, and recognized leadership and innovation in wood use. Nearly 500 guests attended this year`s celebration of wood, including distinguished building and design professionals, owners, local and provincial government representatives, industry sponsors and guests.

There were 100 nominations in 14 categories this year, featuring projects of all types and sizes, and all demonstrating outstanding architectural and structural achievement using wood. The Brock Commons Tallwood House was the most celebrated project of the 2018 Wood Design Awards in BC, with a win in a record three categories, including the Engineer Award, the Architect Award and Wood Innovation Award. The 18-storey project, located at UBC in Vancouver, was the tallest hybrid mass timber building in the world at the time of construction, and showcases qualities which demonstrate wood as a premier building material for the future.

The Wood Champion Award was presented to Kevin Mahon, Adera Development Corporation, Vancouver, whose firm has been a leader in innovation and best practices in the dynamic and growing market sector of five- and six- storey mid-rise wood frame residential construction. A new category this year, the Prefabricated Structural Wood Award was presented to StructureCraft Builders Inc., Abbotsford for its remarkable Abbotsford Industrial Shop and Office.
