TSA Urban Affairs Forum on Wood Construction

Learn more about the recent and on-going innovations in timber engineering at our Urban Affairs Forum ‘Unlocking the Avenues: Wood construction taps into the mid-rise market’ on Nov. 26th. Short presentations by our expert panel will be followed by a lively discussion that critically examines the potential use of wood in mid and high rise construction. What are the economic benefits? What changes are necessary to the Building Code to facilitate the use of wood? Can the use of wood unlock the immense potential of a new mid-rise market throughout the Greater Toronto Area? What is the impact on construction schedules? Are there environmental benefits?
