6 months ago

The 2024 Ottawa Wood Solutions Conference will be held at the Shaw Centre on Feb. 1 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

More than a dozen expert speakers are participating this year including Naama Blonder, co-founder of Smart Density, a Toronto-based practice that combines the disciplines of architecture, urban planning, and urban design to bring a deeper understanding of how cities can address housing affordability and champion inclusive neighbourhoods with more equitable access to housing.

Featured presenters include David Barber, a structural design engineer and timber expert who will share insights into 80M, a mass timber overbuild (a vertical, 3-storey addition built on top of an existing 7-storey concrete building) that presents a very positive case for mass timber construction.

Also, celebrated architect Eladia Smoke, founder, and principal architect of Smoke Architecture. Eladia will present how the traditions, heritage, and cultures of Indigenous people, collected through engagement with Elders and community leaders, helped shape the design of the A-Block Expansion Project at Centennial College, a gateway building that embodies Centennial College’s deep commitment to Truth and Reconciliation.
