A select group of Ontario’s leading architects, engineers, and project teams received Wood Design Awards at the 15th annual Wood WORKS! celebration in Toronto tonight. The awards program recognizes people and organizations that, through design excellence, advocacy, and innovation, are advancing the use of wood in all types of construction.

“The winning projects of this year’s program showcase the many benefits of wood construction,” says Marianne Berube, executive director of the Ontario Wood WORKS! program. “All of these buildings were thoughtfully created with people in mind. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about a large commercial building or a small residential addition, a performance hall or a bar. Wood is a sustainable, innovative, cost-effective building solution that can meet the needs of many projects.”

Ontario Wood WORKS! handed out twelve awards at the event; nine went to specific wood projects and three were given to professionals whose contributions to the design/build community made them stand out as wood design experts and advocates.
