“Checker Building” Report now available for download.

NEWBuildS presented the “CHECKER BUILDING” – a 20-storey conceptual wood building in Vancouver, BC, Montreal, QC and Edmonton, AB. This report includes the design results on the architecture, building envelope, lateral and gravity load resisting systems, fire risks and fire protection of this conceptual 20-storey wood-hybrid building. This 124 page report has comprehensive drawings, illustrations and design calculations.

This report is of great interest to designers, specifiers, wood products producers, researchers, government regulatory bodies and associations willing to take the leader role in the design of tall wood buildings in Canada.
