Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre

This was a milestone project because it was the first commercial installation of  cross-laminated timber (CLT) in Ontario. We love working with CLT, especially in Canada where our forests are sustainably harvested. For this 12,000 sq. ft. building, we designed and detailed the roof deck using large prefabricated CLT panels. Our staggered two-span layout minimizes loading on girders, while the high in-plane shear strength of CLT eliminates sheathing in the diaphragm design. The contractor saved three weeks off the construction schedule for this roof.
