The BCIT Tall Timber Student Housing project will serve BCIT’s Burnaby campus, providing housing for a diverse student population. At 12 storeys above grade, the tall timber tower is configured as two rectangular wings set at 90 degrees with a below-grade basement for services and added storage. The studio and single bedroom suites are modular and stack floor-to-floor, allowing for 464 new dorms and more than doubling the institute’s current housing.
