CENTRE FOR ADVANCED WOOD PRODUCTS
The Centre for Advanced Wood Products Processing (CAWP) is a component of the UBC Forest Sciences Centre. The CAWP is a building to facilitate the education and continuing education of people entering or currently in forest industry secondary manufacturing. Training is provided on the latest state of the art wood fabricating machinery loaned to CAWP for educational purposes.
Although the CAWP is conceived as integrated into the Forestry building it does require and have its own identity. A separate entry and identifying feature tower constructed with Parallam is a reference to the be-hive burners characteristic of traditional BC Forest industry sawmills.
