JC-A worked with Ontario-based mass timber supplier Element5 on promotional material to develop cost-effective student housing for various colleges and universities. A variety of unit types and floor configurations were designed for optimum dimensional widths, lengths and spans of cross-laminated timber (CLT) for off-site fabrication. The goals were to reduce material waste, control costs, offer adaptable building arrangements to suit different site locations, building heights, and a variety of sustainable exterior cladding options.
