Wood Works! Alberta: Wood Solutions Conference
Wednesday, April 11, 2018
Timber Solutions in Education Projects
The session will focus on a selection of SWA’s recent primary school projects, drawing on the practice’s experience in new build and extension projects located in both urban and rural settings. It will look at how the selection of structural timber solutions and timber finishes has responded to the clients’ briefs as well as site and programming constraints. We will also explore how community build was incorporated at Mellor Primary School and the way in which projects such as Mellor and Sandal Magna Primary School have supported the Schools’ sustainable pedagogy.
Timber Office Buildings: Everything Old is New Again
Century-old brick and beam industrial buildings are highly sought after as modern commercial office real estate, and in many markets they have largely all been converted. New versions of the old brick and beam vernacular are being pursued as an attractive and economical form of Class A office space and are highly desirable among progressive employers, especially in the technology start-up sector.
