Brock Commons - Construction Overview

Brock Commons Tallwood House showcases innovations in the application of engineered wood products and in design and construction practices. Outcomes of the three on-site construction phases: concrete, mass-timber structure and building envelope, and interiors and building systems are reported in this case study. Extensive construction planning and sequencing, highly controlled prefabrication of the building structure and envelope, and detailed coordination of on-site erection and installation activities all contributed to a successful project. Design and approvals took 8 months, and construction, starting in November of 2015 through to completion in May 2017, took 18 months.
