District 56 Tallwood 1

Langford, BC

Tallwood 1 is a 12-storey encapsulated mass timber building consisting of ground-level commercial space and 11 storeys of residential units, with 1 storey concrete podium and 2 levels of underground concrete parkade. The structure is a streamlined and efficient point-supported CLT on glulam post floor plate, with highly ductile eccentrically braced steel frames to achieve greater construction speed as compared to more conventional reinforced concrete shear walls. Tallwood 1 is celebrated as the first mass timber tall building on Vancouver Island, and one of the first built in Canada.
