About this event

Due to popular demand, an additional tour of the Ascent building is scheduled at 4:15pm - Sold out - Register to be added to waitlist (3:30pm Tour is sold out)

This tour is limited to 20 people and is intended for AIA members and Architecture Industry Professionals.

At 25 stories, Ascent, a proposed multi-family development in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, will become the tallest mass timber composite building in the world. The financials have been addressed, the variances have been granted and the permits obtained. The first six stories of concrete are in place. The mass timber elements have made it across the Atlantic to the east coast of the United States and then over land to the Port of Milwaukee for staging and finally arriving on site and have begun to be lifted into place! This tour will bring you up close to the installation and allow you to see the way this kit of parts goes together.

Learning Objectives:

  • Experience the logistics of how mass timber structures are assembled on site.
  • Examine the unique challenges associated with the connections of the mass timber to the concrete plinth.
  • Identify the ways the individual elements are connected.
  • Evaluate the advantages and the comparative construction time between the two materials used on this project.
