“Wood WORKS! is a national industry led initiative of the Canadian Wood Council, with a goal to support innovation and provide leadership on the use of wood and wood products. The annual Wood Design Awards of BC aim to honor excellence in wood-based projects and to recognize the people and organizations that are pioneering and achieving this objective.

The Wood WORKS! BC Wood Design Awards bring together people from all sectors to recognize leadership and innovation in wood use. The awards also serve as an opportunity to publicly recognize and encourage continued excellence in the building and design community and in the forest industry. This high profile annual event celebrates innovative structural and architectural uses of wood and provides an opportunity for architects, engineers, building designers, builders and project owners to showcase their projects. Structures commissioned after January 2008 will be considered for this year’s awards.” via wood-works.ca
