1. The Wood Design & Building Awards program recognizes design teams that are passionate about celebrating wood as a safe, strong and sophisticated building material.
    Although wood has been used in construction for centuries, advancements in technology and products are re-defining what is possible. With this evolution comes the celebration of wood as an innovative building material that complements other products, adheres to the safety requirements of building codes, and has an environmental story that hones in on responsibly managed forests and a desire for less greenhouse gas emissions within the built environment.

The Wood Design & Building Awards program is an opportunity to celebrate design and construction teams that challenge the conventional way we think about wood in construction. Projects submitted to the Wood Design & Building Awards program are accepted from Canada, US, and internationally, adding value to the diversity of wood building application examples.

Winning projects of the Wood Design & Building Awards program are featured in the prestigious Wood Design Awards book – Celebrating Excellence in WoodArchitecture. This coveted publication is designed to inspire design and construction teams to explore the realm of possibilities of wood for their next projects. A jury of prominent architects from Canada and the U.S. reviews the submissions based on various considerations such as creativity, appropriate use of wood materials in satisfying clients’ building and site requirements and innovative design.

Submission deadline: November 26th, 2019.
