We are honoured to have won the Wood Design Award from Ontario Wood WORKS! this week for the Ontario Wood Pavilion. We helped design this booth for Ontario Wood at The Interior Design Show (IDS17) earlier this year along with blackLAB architects. The show took place between January 19-22 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Architects, engineers, developers and other construction industry professionals at the forefront of wood design in the province were recognized during the recent 17th annual Ontario Wood WORKS! Awards.
The awards program honours people and organizations that through design excellence, advocacy and innovation are advancing the use of wood in all types of construction.
“It is our privilege to celebrate Ontario’s wood design leaders,” said Marianne Berube, executive director of the Ontario Wood WORKS! program. “Wood is an extraordinary building material. It is also a sustainable building solution. Design professionals who understand the need for sustainable development are specifying wood products for innovative, environmentally responsible construction.”
Ontario Wood WORKS! presented 12 awards at a Nov. 1 event in Toronto. Ten awards went to specific wood projects and two were given to professionals for contributions to the building industry that advance the case for wood design and construction.
