Timber Goes High-Tech in New Toronto Office Tower

In WoodWorks by innovatekLeave a Comment

Set to break ground this month, Toronto’s 77 Wade is taking a high-tech approach to hybrid construction. This eight-story office building blends historic timber construction from yesteryear with the innovative possibilities of today’s advanced wood-hybrid building systems.

Once complete, 77 Wade will be the tallest mass timber office building in Canada targeting LEED Gold certification. Mass timber is decreasing the project’s environmental footprint through:

  • Local timber sourcing
  • Offsite prefabrication
  • Biophilic design features
