LODGES, CABINS & OFF-GRID RETREATS: designing and building with pre-fabricated Western Red Cedar interlocking system
1 Hour LIVE WEBINAR Session | AIBC 1 Core LU | AIA 1 LU | BC Housing 1 CPD, Informal | AAA 1 Structured LU
With the global imperative to move to a low carbon economy, the way buildings are designed, manufactured and built is a key component. In this session, we will look at the considerations for low embodied carbon and high carbon sequestering buildings, at pre-fabricated interlocking wood building systems and with a specific focus on lodges (e.g. cultural, golf, fishing, yoga), cabins, and off-grid retreat projects.
In particular, we will learn about the structurally durable and aesthetically beautiful material of choice: Western Red Cedar, which is sustainably sourced and processed in British Columbia. Further discussion will be around the architectural design guidelines of pre-fabricated interlocking building systems – perfect for building on islands, water-access lots or other remote locations, while leaving a low ecological impact.
This session will be presented by an industry professional from Panabode International Ltd.
