EN FRANCAIS

CECOBOIS offers technical support services and ongoing training for promoters, engineers and architects on:
The National building code;
Standards and calculation methods;
Structural performance, acoustics, thermal and fire resistance in wood structures;
The possibility of using structural wood products and decorative wood in commercial, industrial and institutional sectors.
 
Professionals such as architects, engineers, promoters and builders working with wood in non-residential sectors can join CECOBOIS as partners.
Prior to the Gala evening celebrating CECOBOIS prizes for excellence held in February (2017) in Quebec City (See www.cecobois.com), participants were invited to visit the « Origine » condo project (www.condosorigine.com) in the eco-district of Pointe-aux-Lièvres in Quebec City.
 
The Origine project innovates in many ways. This new condo building is built with cross laminated lumber known as CLT and will be thirteen stories high. This project will become a showcase for building durable and innovative projects with Québec developed wood products.
Origine will be the tallest “all wood” condo tower in North America.
