About MTP

Mass Timber Planning was born from the collaboration between BCIT’s School of Construction and the Environment and UNBC’s School of Engineering. Together with funding support from the Government of BC, and in the spirit of collaborative growth of the mass timber industry, we bring the growing pool of experience with mass timber construction to the public realm.

While mass timber construction is relatively new in Canada and the US, those in the industry are aware of its many benefits, including unmatched sustainability, aesthetic appeal and faster construction.

Through continued knowledge sharing on this platform, MTP aims to support the proliferation of mass timber as a sustainable and efficient solution in construction.

BCIT’s School Of Construction and the Environment is the leading contributor of trades, engineering, and applied sciences professionals in the province with over 300 courses and customized training.
