VRCA, VEC & ZEBx: Competitive Edge Series – Advanced Structures and Envelopes, from Mass Timber to Prefab

The Competitive Edge – Growing Your Business in the Future of Construction

Construction is undeniably changing. From significant regulatory changes over the past few years, such as the BC Energy Step Code, to industry trends towards greater digitalization and industrialization. Many challenges – like an aging workforce – and opportunities – like increased urban density and infrastructure development – lay on the horizon.

Recognizing the unique intersection of policy, trends, and the potential for leadership, the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC), and the Zero Emissions Building Exchange (ZEBx) are partnering on a series of webinars for leaders in the construction industry.

You are invited to attend the third session of the ‘Competitive Edge’ series. This session will focus on discussing and exploring the huge amount of changes that are moving forward in advanced structural design, including mass timber, prefabrication and industrial methods of assembly.

Key points of discussion will include:

  • Policy and regulatory drivers for mass timber
  • Addressing the cost differential
  • Best practices in design and assembly


Please note that registrants of this session will also receive access to the recordings of the first two sessions.
