Wood Innovation and Design Centre

When it was constructed, the Wood Innovation and Design Centre (WIDC) was the tallest wood building in Prince George and the tallest contemporary wood building in North America.

Completed in October 2014, the WIDC is a six-storey plus mechanical penthouse, 29.5 metre-high structure that showcases British Columbia’s growing expertise in the design and construction of large-scale wood buildings.
