The TallWood House at Brock Commons

When the University of British Columbia proposed a 404-bed student residence tower built of wood, Fast + Epp was keen to lend our expertise to the project. We knew it could be constructed cost-competitively with a traditional concrete tower, in a fraction of the time.

When completed in 2017, TallWood House was recognized as the tallest mass timber hybrid building in the world, reaching 53m.
