In a significant move towards sustainable construction, the government has granted $3.5 million to the construction of 2150 Keith Drive in Vancouver.
The 10-storey hybrid mass timber commercial office building will utilize cross-laminated timber panels and glue-laminated timber components, boasting a distinctive honeycomb-shaped exterior. Its wooden braced-frame system eliminates the need for an interior concrete core, reducing environmental impact.
The building’s exoskeleton design allows for scalability and cost-efficiency in green construction.
The project, supported by the Green Construction Through Wood Program, aims to enhance Canada’s bioeconomy and promote low-carbon construction. Completion is expected in 2025.
