Canada taking command in the charge for tall buildings

Huge potential for building with wood

The gates are starting to open for “a big opportunity in wood” around the world with the construction of tall buildings and Canada is among the countries leading the charge, says a business analyst with FPInnovations.

“There are multiple projects globally and right here in Canada that are changing the way we think about building taller with wood,” said Ben Romanchych, who is with the not-for-profit Canadian company that does various research and development initiatives in the forestry sector.
