ISL’s Melissa Kindratsky Named Wood WORKS! Wood Champion

In June 2018, Melissa Kindratsky, B.Sc., P.Eng., LEED AP BD+C was recognized as a Wood WORKS! Wood Champion.

The Canadian Wood WORKS! Program understands wood champions to be individuals who believe in the merits of the material and the research that is driving innovation in wood products. For these champions, Wood WORKS! is an essential program for technical information, educational events and networking opportunities, and the projects Wood WORKS! profiles, inspire them. Wood champions come from diverse career backgrounds ranging from the design and construction community, to municipal and government leaders, to fire officials.

"Melissa has an appreciation for the engineering complexities of wood as the only living building material and is quick to share her keen eye, technical expertise and passion for using timber to build green with others,” Adrian Wilson, Ph.D., P.Eng. and ISL Director and Manager of ISL’s Canmore office.

Melissa has worked on the award-winning Wilson Lifestyle Centre Retail Building, Eventyre Farms Equestrian Facility and more. Melissa is a Structural Project Engineer in the Structural-Buildings group in ISL’s Canmore office.
