Latest case study on industrial buildings is available

Wood WORKS! BC is pleased to announce completion of its latest case study on industrial buildings. Mass timber is making its mark on the residential and commercial sectors, and is now making inroads into a new sector which has long been dominated by concrete tilt-up and steel-frame construction – industrial buildings.
