Event description
The Mass Timber Hackathon is happening in Portland.

About this Event

Presenters (Friday afternoon from 1- 6 pm) and Saturday morning.

Join leading architects, engineers, reseachers, builders, fabricators, real estate professionals and technologists for a weekend of innovation focused on mass timber, digitalization of construction, automation, robotics and software.

The event will feature workshops and presentations followed by a weekend long hackathon focused on mass timber. This event will be followed by the International Mass Timber Conference on March 24-26th. We welcome participants to join both events in Portland, Oregon

The Pacific Northwest is the fastest emerging American "cluster" of mass timber companies and home to the country's most productive forests. Interest in mass timber is growing quickly as are the "local" and thriving technology, real estate and construction industries - all while the U.S. West Coast housing shortage continues to grow. Join us for a weekend of developing solutions using technology and timber.

This event is created to give those designing, building, fabricating and building the future of the mass timber industry a unique opportunity to learn from and collaborate with both partners and cutting-edge technologies and the technologists creating the tools and future of the $12 trillion construction industry.

The first "Mass Timber Hackathon" is being organized by the team that created a global construction innovation movement through the AEC Hackathon (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) events (43 AEC Hackathons in 30 cities in 10 countries thus far). This Hackathon will be focused on mass timber and associated digitalization.
