AIBC Vancouver Island Chapter – Chapter Lunch: Cross-laminated Timber, A Case Study of the Elkford Community Centre

Popular in Europe, cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a growing phenomenon in North America. Designers and builders are eager to learn more about how this product is being used. In this presentation,  Mark Porter MIStructE P.Eng. Struct.Eng. LEED AP of Associated Engineering, along with John Paone from AHC Group, will examine the use of CLT in the Elkford Community Center, a multi-use facility and future community landmark. Currently under construction, this 1,538m2 facility is the first in British Columbia to use tall CLT shear walls.  Find out why CLT was chosen for use in conjunction with other building systems such as structural insulated panels (SIPs) and glued laminated (glulam) beams. This session will cover everything from the design process to installation of services and finishes, including coordination and the erection process.  It takes place Wednesday, January 25, 2011, 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m. at Ambrosia Centre, 638 Fisgard Street, Victoria.
