McEwen School of Architecture is the first new school of architecture to be built in Canada in 40 years. Cross-laminated timber was used to build the auditorium and library. In the library wing, 75% of the interior finishes is exposed CLT panels. The prefabricated CLT panels used on this project helped accelerate the build time: erection of the wood structure and envelope was completed in only two weeks.
