More than 350 distinguished design and building professionals, including architects, engineers, designers, project teams, industry sponsors and guests, gathered to honour the nominees and winners of the 2016 Wood Design Awards in B.C. presented by Wood WORKS! BC. The 12th annual awards event at the Vancouver Convention Centre (West) recognized leadership in advancing wood use in design and building while being an opportunity to publicly salute and celebrate structural and architectural achievement using wood.
Inspired and innovative designs of wood structures in smaller urban B.C. centres and mid-rise construction were featured along with many impressive large public buildings including a museum, visitor centre and a diplomatic property located outside of the province and Canada.
