The Toronto Wood Solutions Conference is back – in person – on Thursday, November 24, 2022, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the Paramount Eventspace, located at 222 Rowntree Dairy Road in Woodbridge, Ontario.
The Toronto Wood Solutions Conference is an educational event and trade show created to meet the needs of a diverse audience of design and construction professionals. The presentations range from inspirational to technical. Several building case studies will be presented including T3 Bayside in Toronto, District 56 – Tallwood 1, the first 12 storey building in Canada constructed under the new EMTC code provisions, and the University of Victoria’s National Centre for Indigenous Laws.
Additional technical topics include: light wood frame and mass timber hybrid solutions for mid-rise, outcomes and findings from the recent mass timber fire demonstration test, the launch of the Guide to Encapsulated Mass Timber Construction (EMTC) in the Ontario Building Code, the development of a mass timber-concrete composite panel for tall wood buildings, treated wood, prefabricated wood solutions for multi-unit housing, important features of wind resilient buildings, and innovative building envelope solutions for wood buildings.
Globally, the growing prevalence of wood construction is the result of many factors. For one, wood’s superior environmental characteristics are directly in line with the drive towards lower-carbon construction solutions. In addition, technical advancements in engineered wood products, the growing utilization of mass timber in the marketplace, and updated building codes that permit taller and larger wood structures have enabled and encouraged designers to explore new ways of building with wood.
Registration for the day is $275 +HST and includes continental breakfast, lunch, all sessions, and a personalized continuing education certificate documenting learning hours completed.
