    Like I say it's been a few years, and I think I was looking at 'pure' CLT buildings. This one seems to feature 'timber concrete composites', which is new to me.
    Let's make Edmonton better.

      there are some very interesting new materials and processes "out there".

      the common "sticky point" however is probable still the connections rather than the materials.

        I wonder if glulam or other lumber could be created in place, creating continous beams of any desired height.

          Any chance we see a Qualico project so I can check it out in person?

            CLT and glulam along with LVLs in certain applications can work, as Ken mentions above, very well. It will be quite interesting to see more hybrid buildings.

              Well definitely an interesting discussion being had. As I haven't been here in a long while I see the appetite for wood structures has certainly increased.

              I have to thank many of the members here that truly look at this topic with open eye's and great understanding.

              Here is a link to an 18-storey timber building currently going up at UBC:

              more info on other mass timber products and research:

              of course our website: http://wood-works.ca/

              Please keep your ear to the ground when it comes to wood design as we are always putting on seminars, workshops and our Wood Solutions Fair where you can learn about mass timber and other structural wood solutions.

                Neat design (conceptual at the moment) for an 800ft wood building in Chicago. Wood's different properties than steel/concrete led to some interesting design choices, described in the article.

                  Though it's a hybrid, the top 7-stories of the 19-stories building will be timber, not quite the 58 metre student residence at UBC but it's becoming more popular in the BC Lower Mainland due to high land and construction costs and the building code finally getting with the times: https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/1255...-ban-vancouver

                  This is more than a design concept too and is in the application process. MEC is currently building their Olympic Village flagship store out of timber as well.

                    With the ever innovative tech/hybrid in LVL or Glulam timbers, you should have a lot more freedom (code restricted) when designing these days.

                      We have this right here in Edmonton!

                      The new development on Stony Plain Road and 142 Street, West Block, has a three story Commercial / Retail component that is made from Timbers and it looks very cool, in this video you can see the timbers behind the glass, https://youtu.be/Dx7oSZuHp7g (From 0:56 to 1:06 of the video is the best look from the outside and 2:11 to 2:27 for the inside of the building ) I don't get in the area much but if someone lives around there take a look and add some pictures while it is under construction that would be awesome

                      Thanks

                        The timber looks cool.
