Wood Innovation and Design Centre: Vertical Movement and Moisture Performance
LOCATION: Prince George, BC
AREA: 52,000 Sq. Ft.
SENSOR CLASS: Investigative Research
SMT was contracted by FPInnovations to measure the vertical movement and CLT moisture performance of the Wood Innovation and Design Centre (WIDC) building locating in Prince George, BC.
The Wood Innovation and Design Centre in Prince George, British Columbia provides a unique opportunity for non-destructive testing and monitoring to measure the ‘As Built’ performance of a relatively tall mass timber building. Field measurements also provide performance data to support regulatory and market acceptance of wood-based systems in tall and large buildings.
