Sustainability Highlights – May 2017 – Earth-Ocean-Sciences-Building

The Earth Sciences Building (ESB) features the largest application of cross laminated timber (CLT) in North America, using over 1,300 tons of BC‑sourced and engineered CLT. Each ton of dry wood products sequesters sufficient carbon to keep between 1.8 and 2.0 tons of CO2 from being formed. ESB also features a high‑efficiency envelope, a timber cantilevered staircase, high‑performance window glazing, thermal energy exchange and a stormwater management system.
