BC Housing is offering a two-part series webinar entitled Building Smart: The Economics of Building with Mass Timber – Part One and Two on October 4 and 18, 2022.

What are the costs to build a 7-12 storey multi-family building with mass timber in BC? How will these buildings meet BC Energy Step Code requirements?

Join us online for the answers to these questions with six industry specialists. Speakers will share highlights from their recent B.C. study on the economics of building with mass timber. 

This series is being held in collaboration with NRCan, CMHC, Forestry Innovation Investment and the Province of BC’s Office of Mass Timber Implementation.

Part one of the series will review examples of regional multi-unit buildings designed for unique site-specific requirements and climate zones.

Part two focuses on energy modeling and cost analysis. It explains the methodology for mass timber estimating as well as a practical demonstration of the new online Mass timber + Energy Parametric Costing Tool from the Province of BC.
