Emerging Building Systems and Wood Innovation

The primary objective of this project is to develop and test an innovation feedback platform and methodology that will help the Canadian construction industry overcome significant, industry-wide barriers to innovative uses of wood, and become confident in embracing new ideas, products and processes, thereby advancing the uptake of innovative timber solutions at home and abroad. The idea is to establish a collaborative system that will help practitioners to gain access to leading experts so they can resolve technical and regulatory barriers to innovative wood buildings in a timely way, and share the learnings without fear of challenge.
