The wood components are quickly being installed this week at the University of British Columbia’s new Wood Innovation and Design Centre.
With many of the columns and beams for the double-height foyer already installed, the two layers of mass timber floor panels have been placed along the east and north sides. The panels will be connected using HSK connectors placed in saw kerfs penetrating the top layer and part-way through the bottom panel.
The first mass timber panels for the shaft can also be seen inside the north sector.
