Event description

Description

Mass timber is a rapidly advancing technology that can be utilized as a carbon-friendly alternative to steel and concrete to frame a variety of low-, mid- and high-rise building types. This afternoon seminar will provide a detailed look at the variety of mass timber products available (e.g. glulam, CLT, NLT), applications for their use under modern building codes and examples of mass timber projects in the United States. Mass timber’s ability to act as both structure and exposed finish will also be highlighted, as will its performance as part of an assembly, considering design objectives related to structural performance, fire resistance, acoustics, and energy efficiency. Other topics will include detailing and construction best practices, lessons learned from completed projects and trends for the increased use of mass timber products in the future. The guest presenter for this seminar is Ethan Martin, the Northwest Regional Director for WoodWorks.




Who should attend?

This seminar will primarily be for architects, construction company owners, developers and building officials. Government representatives, real estate development lenders and members of the forestry industry will also quite likely find value in attending due to the impact that mass timber is forecast to have on the built environment.
