World's Tallest Wood Building

The world's tallest wood building at 18 storeys is four months ahead of schedule.

World's Tallest Wood Building

The structure was completed less than 70 days after the prefabricated components were first delivered to the site. Construction will now focus on interior elements , with completion expected in early May 2017 -- 18 per cent (or four months) faster than a typical project. The building is expected to welcome more than 400 students in September 2017.
"This remarkable building , the first of its kind in the world , is another shining example of Canadian ingenuity and innovation , an apt demonstration of how Canada's forest industry is finding new opportunities through technology and innovation  , opening up a world of possibilities for our forest and construction industries ," said Jim Carr , Canada's Minister of Natural Resources.

Brock Commons is the first mass wood , steel and concrete hybrid project taller than 14 storeys in the world. The building has a concrete podium and two concrete cores , with 17 storeys of cross-laminated-timber floors supported on glue-laminated wood columns. The cladding for the façade is made with 70 per cent wood fibre.
The project is expected to cost approximately $51.5 million , with $47.07 million financed by UBC. Being the first of its kind , it entailed an initial innovation cost and received funding from Natural Resources Canada ($2.34 million) , the Province of B.C. ($1.65 million) , and the Binational Softwood Lumber Council ($467,000).

Wood is a sustainable and versatile building material that stores , rather than emits , carbon dioxide. By using wood , the impact is a reduction of 2,432 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide compared to other construction materials , the equivalent of taking around 500 cars off the road for a year.
