Wood WORKS! is a national industry-led initiative of the Canadian Wood Council, with a goal to support innovation and provide leadership on the use of wood and wood products. The annual Wood Design Awards of BC aim to honour excellence in wood-based projects and to recognize the people and organizations that are pioneering and achieving this objective.
The Wood WORKS! BC Wood Design Awards bring together people from all sectors to recognize leadership and innovation in wood use. The awards also serve as an opportunity to publicly recognize and encourage continued excellence in the building and design community and in the forest industry. This high-profile annual event celebrates innovative structural and architectural uses of wood and provides an opportunity for architects, engineers, building designers, builders and project owners to showcase their projects. Structures commissioned after January 2008 will be considered for this year’s awards.
Nomination categories include wood construction projects (civic, private, public), institutional projects (large, small) and the Premier’s Award. Nomination forms are available online; the deadline for nominations is February 1, 2012. The winners will be announced at a celebration to be held on Monday, March 5, 2012 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West in Vancouver, BC.
