UQAC Arena, University of Quebec at Chicoutimi

Chicoutimi, Québec

This space-age structure features a hybrid wood-steel truss system supporting a glulaminated deck. In addition to providing excellent structural properties, the timber reduces the overall environmental footprint of the building, with a net reduction of 104 tonnes of carbon compared to a steel structrure (cecobois).
