Renewable Cities: New Guide Offers Solutions for Mid-Rise Prefabricated Mass Timber Construction
Mass timber is part of a worldwide construction shift towards prefabrication and offsite construction. Prefabricated buildings made from sustainably sourced mass timber are a huge environmental and economic opportunity for B.C. and generate a triple win of low-carbon buildings, secure jobs, and forest sector growth.
Building Capacity: Local Prefab Mass Timber Solutions, a guide developed by Renewable Cities, paves the way for local governments to develop policies and regulations that facilitate mid-rise mass timber construction. It also provides paths for senior levels of government and the building sector to contribute to successful mass timber projects and help scale this novel building form in B.C.

ZEBx Decarb Lunch: The OSO Residential Development
Last month, ZEBx released the sixth case study from the CleanBC Net-Zero Energy-Ready Challenge Winners series. Funded by CleanBC and managed by Integral Group, the program showcases ten exemplary buildings that aim for the highest levels of the BC Energy Step Code and beyond. But the OSO development isn’t just highly energy-efficient – it’s also climate-friendly and climate-resilient. Although the building ticks all the boxes, what we think is most special about this development is that the developer/builder, Vidorra Developments, has figured out a way to build these high-performance buildings for less than what it costs to build a code-minimum building. Join ZEBx and our co-host, Integral Group, as we hear about the OSO development and Vidorra’s journey to this unique status in the building industry.
