The annual Wood WORKS! Alberta awards recognize projects and organizations that advance the use of wood in construction through design excellence, advocacy, and innovation. All participating projects need to show a wide range of wood product applications and demonstrate an understanding of the special qualities of wood, such as strength, durability, beauty and cost-effectiveness.

Award recipients are presented with a customized wood trophy acknowledging their ability to push the boundaries of wood in construction. Wood products used in winning projects are locally sourced, architecturally appealing and sophisticated.

Our Contribution

We’re honored we were able to collaborate on this amazing project allowing us to embrace our sustainable ethic. We cut, stained and installed 6600 bdft of Douglas Fir and larch and 200 bdft of Larch blocker boards where rafters extended to the exterior.
