The Mid-Rise construction comparative analysis report - Wood v Concrete download (128 pages)

The construction of mid-rise buildings (between 6 and 10 floors) is the most important sector of the residential construction industry in Canada, and this growing sector throughout North American cities frequently specifies using concrete construction. Wood structures, as a consequence - including glulam and CLT (cross laminated timber) products for mid-rise multifamily residential buildings - don't yet occupy their fair share of the market across Canada and North America. For economic and environmental reasons, it's in our common interest to put wood at the forefront of our communities and cities - which is why Ecohabitation and Ecohome prepared this comparative analysis report of Wood versus Concrete and have made it available to download below.
