The Wood Innovation and Design Centre in downtown Prince George will feature inventive use of wood solutions to solve every-day design and construction challenges, while demonstrating the beauty and diversity of value-added BC wood products. The construction system being used is repeatable and expandable to other building types and sizes.
This will be the future home of the proposed Master of Engineering in Integrated Wood Design* and the proposed Master of Applied Science* program. These programs will allow students to pursue research on wood and other forest products related to future wood structures, will attract students who will graduate and lead the world in the construction of new wood structures that will be both sustainable and healthy, illustrating the benefits of wood construction to healthy ecosystems and healthy communities.
And above all, when we educate in the North… Students are more likely to stay in the North.
