Largest shipment of mass timber from B.C. ships to India’s CEPT University

During an October 2016 trade mission to India, representatives from B.C. visited the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) University located in Ahmedabad, Gujurat State to support a partnership between the Province and the University. The project will not only inspire the school’s students who work and design with wood, but will also be a model of sustainable architecture and environmental responsibility for the Indian design community.

The shipment from B.C. included engineered wood products from Penticton’s Stucturlam; hemlock, Douglas fir and yellow cedar lumber supplied by Surrey’s Coast Clear Wood as well as donated lumber from the Coast Forest Products Association.
