How can exciting new forest-based bio-materials contribute to green, high-performance building systems of the future? The BioBuild Challenge is an online collaborative event that will take place over a 12 week period. Participants with varied backgrounds such as wood science, engineering, design and chemistry are invited to work together to explore the use of novel wood-based bio-materials to produce the next generation multi-functional building panels. While this challenge is mainly about collaboration and exploring new ways to use renewable materials, The BioBuild Challenge will be awarding a $5000 CDN cash prize to the grand prize entry.
