Please join us for a presentation on Limberlost Place, a project under construction for Toronto’s George Brown College, poised to be one of the first assembly occupancy, tall, exposed mass timber, net-zero carbon emissions buildings in the world. Project lead Carol Phillips will discuss the research and innovation that went into winning the international design competition, and the significant challenges associated with navigating the regulatory and approvals processes thereafter. Carol will discuss the project’s structural design testing and code approvals, funded by both the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Natural Resources Canada, in addition to the ambitious sustainability targets set forth by Waterfront Toronto and the City’s Planning and Development Dept. Already the recipient of 8 awards for innovation and design excellence, Limberlost Place is set to open new doors for mass timber construction in Canada.

Carol Phillips is a Partner at Moriyama Teshima Architects (MTA) and a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. Her portfolio includes MTA’s most ambitious, low-carbon, mass timber, LEED Platinum, and net-zero targeted projects, including Limberlost Place (a joint venture with Acton Ostry Architects) for George Brown College, and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation Multi-Tenant Commercial Building.
