Elkford Community Conference Centre
The $6.4 million energy-efficient Community Conference Centre is constructed of structural wood and conserves maximum energy and reduces the Centre’s environmental footprint. The 1,800-square-metre building features a Visitor Centre, playschool, commercial kitchen, banquet hall with a stage for the performing arts, multi-purpose meeting rooms as well as historical displays. The building is being widely recognized for its innovative use of wood products, as it is the first commercial application of Cross Laminated Timbers (CLT) wall panels in North America.
"The wood use in our new centre provides beautiful aesthetics while supporting the wood industry and wood innovation in our province. This building will play a key role in helping our community grow and prosper, benefitting current and future generations” proudly boasts Mayor Dean McKerracher.
