CUBES. A purpose built rental housing and mixed use/commercial project located in Courtenay, BC. The structure consists of a concrete podium, off-site manufactured Mass Timber panel floors and conventional wood framed walls hoisted in place by cranes. The main benefits of such construction include an accelerated project schedule, use of sustainable building materials and a natural aesthetic in the residential units. Have a look at the 3D virtual tour of the show suite attached, the Mass Timber ceilings exude a sense of warmth and softness in the living spaces that project out onto the underside of the balconies outside. Acoustic performance was recently tested and results were better than expected, due to a combination of creative solutions and attention to detail by the team at Studio 531 and AFC Construction. The project is scheduled for occupancy this Summer. More about the project can be seen at:
