Frenkel appointed to Mass Timber Advisory Council

UBCM President Brian Frenkel is one of 16 members appointed to the Province’s Mass Timber Advisory Council. Council members will provide advice and guidance towards establishing BC as a leader in the production and use of mass timber, as well as the creation of a mass timber action plan.

In addition to announcing the establishment of the Advisory Council, $4.2 million in provincial funding has been allocated for 12 mass timber demonstration and research projects. These projects will assist urban planners and developers adopt mass timber building systems by supporting the incremental or first-time costs of design development, research, permitting and construction activities.

In 2019, the Province adopted new national building code provisions for 12-storey mass timber construction for interested communities. To date, twenty communities have opted in to the new provisions.

Further information about the Mass Timber Demonstration Program can be found on the dedicated website.
