The Tsawwassen Youth Center, developed by the Tsawwassen First Nation, is a 2-storey 12,000 sqft building utilizing logs, steel, light wood-frame and DowelLam DLT components. This complex hybrid structure is the first in North America to use DLT walls as a significant structural component of the lateral force-resisting system despite the many large openings.
