Description:
Brock Commons is an innovative 18-story hybrid timber-concrete structure providing 305 housing units at the University of British Columbia (UBC). It was a highly collaborative project driven by dedicated and sophisticated virtual design and construction coordination, within a conventional construction management (CM) contract to deliver the tallest wood structure in the world, at the time of construction. This project adopted the main IPD principles for its delivery framework. The construction involved prefabrication in the form of cross- laminated timber (CLT) panels and glued-laminated timber columns, as well as on-site construction of concrete podium and elevator shafts. A key to the project's success was early coordination. A two-story mockup and 3D modeling allowed the design team to discuss, test, and streamline the process prior to site erection. The wood structure was completed in less than 70 days after the prefabricated components arrived on site four months faster than a typical project of this size.
