The Vancouver School Board (VSB) committed to seismically upgrading and replacing schools and has established an initiative to use mass timber in new construction. Hence, when the time came to replace the original Bayview Elementary School with the new two-storey K-7 building consisting of approximately 35,600 square feet and a 4,600 square foot Neighbourhood Learning Centre, the choice to build with mass timber was clear.
