Gulf Islands Operations Centre
Glulam and wood was used to blend the country's first LEED® Canada Platinum building into nature's backdrop.
This was the first building to be given a LEED Canada Platinum rating. More than 27% of the building materials used were manufactured from recycled materials. Glulam columns and beams support a majority of the loads, minimizing the amount of steel members required. The Douglas Fir used for Glulam members, wood framing members, and wall finishes are all of a local species, and were left exposed to minimize the interior finishes while still maintaining a high quality look.
