Definitive guide on building tall with wood now available in French

The French version of the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada is now available. The guide was completely revised and updated from its 2014 edition with the most up-to-date information and is aimed at assisting architects, engineers, code consultants, developers, building owners, and authorities having jurisdiction to understand the unique context to be considered when developing and constructing tall wood buildings.

This new 2022 edition of the guide complies with the recently published 2020 National Building Code of Canada, the 2019 edition of the CSA standard O86, and the Canadian Wood Council Wood Design Manual 2020. It was written and peer-reviewed by more than 60 experts and was financially supported by Natural Resources Canada, Forestry Innovation Investment Ltd., BC Housing, Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs Québec, Régie du bâtiment du Québec, Government of Saskatchewan, Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry, and FPInnovations’ industry partners.
