Limberlost Place, George Brown College – A slab banded structure: The winner of an international design competition, the $150M Limberlost Place will be a 10-storey, 16,250 square-meter, exposed tall wood structure located on George Brown College’s waterfront campus in Toronto. The project will serve as an educational hub for George Brown College, housing a Tall Wood Research Institute and a childcare centre in addition to a significant amount of teaching and social spaces.
Working in collaboration with Moriyama & Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects, Fast + Epp developed an innovative large span beamless structural system that is comprised of timber-concrete-composite CLT slab bands with perpendicular CLT infill panels, all supported on glulam columns. This long span flat plate system allows for flexibility in architectural programming and unobstructed mechanical distribution.
