Adera silences critics of six-story wooden tower

October 23, 2014

North Vancouver’s first six-storey condominium building constructed with wood-frame construction may help silence critics of the nascent building system. In 2009, the BC Building Code was changed to allow an increase in the maximum height for wood-frame residential construction from four to six storeys. Only a handful of such wood structures have been completed in Metro Vancouver, but 79 are under construction across the province, according to WoodWorks BC, a division of the Canadian Wood Council.
