Wood in Hospitality and Tourism

In the competitive hospitality industry, developers and architects are continuously seeking fresh, imaginative and sustainable design ideas that help differentiate their hotel, restaurant, banquet hall and other hospitality venues from their competitors.

The long-recognized benefits of building with wood and wood products from BC continue to provide value for hospitality building owners. The popularity of BC wood is one of the many drivers adding to Canada’s leadership in wood design and construction.

Owners and developers of hospitality venues are constantly balancing their desire to design innovative buildings that provide exceptional guest experiences against their need to build and operate sustainable, affordable, functional facilities.
