BIRD MIGRATION STATION

SEGMENT: PUBLIC SECTOR

Element5 were invited by Watson MacEwen Teramura Architects to consult on the timber portion of this bird banding station in Prince Edward County. Located in one of Canada’s National Wildlife Areas, mass timber was a viable option due to its ability to blend the structure with its  natural surrounding and be assembled with minimal impact. The structure features a large front roof overhang that rests on glulam beams and CLT walls. Watch this video for a recap of the one-day assembly process.  

Location:

Prince Edward County National Wildlife Area, Ontario

Materials:

CLT roof, CLT exterior walls, CLT interior partition walls, Glulam columns, Glulam beams, Connections

Scope:
