Get your copy of the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada
Wood is once again a practical building material for tall buildings. With the use of advanced wood technologies and modern mass timber products such as glued-laminated timber, cross-laminated timber and structural composite lumber, building tall with wood is achievable.


The Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada has been prepared by a group of experts to assist architects, engineers, code consultants, developers, building owners, and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) in understanding the unique issues to be addressed when developing and constructing tall wood buildings that are beyond the height and area limits currently found in the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC).

It provides design and construction teams with the concepts and background to respond to questions that arise when designing beyond the height and area limits prescribed by the NBCC.
