New policies encourage tall mass timber in Vancouver

One of our projects is featured in a new article on the Daily Hive regarding mass timber construction in Vancouver. It is great news to see that Vancouver City Council is putting in place pro-tall timber policies that will allow BC to continue leading the charge upwards in the country.

The policy offers rezoning incentives to developers that choose mass timber as a construction material, providing additional height and building floor area. Builders can claim an extra two or three storeys if they choose mass timber option like CLT (cross-laminated timber).

We are glad to see that Vancouver City Council is showing support for more eco-friendly building practices!
