UPLAND led a multi-disciplinary consulting team to prepare a master plan for a new visitor experience at the Bay of Fundy. As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of North America, the Bay of Fundy represents immense value and pride for the area. The Fundy Gateway site presents a unique opportunity, thanks to its central and visible location. Our team, consisting of tourism and economic development experts, architects, urban designers, landscape architects and engineers, created site and building concept plans, interpretive programming ideas, a business case and a strategy for implementation.

 Recent changes to the National Building Code (NBCC), and a trend towards more diversified housing options, have meant that many Canadian jurisdictions are acting quickly to capture the environmental, economic and social benefits of higher wood buildings. The NBCC now allows for the height restriction of light wood frame construction to be increased to 6 stories. Today, already 75% of Canadians live in jurisdictions that allow 6 storey wood frame construction.   With the overall benefits of using wood as a building material well documented, Atlantic WoodWORKS! embarked on studying the opportunities for 6 storey wood construction in Atlantic Canadian Centres. UPLAND was leading a consulting team to cary out the research, which included a comprehensive market study and projections for mid-rise demand in four major centres in Atlantic Canada, a review of recent and upcoming planning changes in major Atlantic Canadian cities and a full cost analysis, comparing wood construction to three other construction methods in use in the Atlantic market using a real-life wood mid-rise structure built by an experienced builder.  The full results of this study were consolidated into a comprehensive research report by UPLAND.
