Plain Language Summary
This infographic provides an overview of the Tall Wood Building Demonstration Initiative (TWBDI), which funded the construction of Canada’s Brock Commons Tallwood House and Origine Écocondos. A precursor to the GCWood program, the TWBDI addressed technical barriers in the design and construction of tall wood structures and encouraged greater acceptance of engineered wood products in tall building applications.
