Event description

Description

Advancements in wood technologies have expanded the use of wood in design and construction. Mass timber products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) have emerged and offer opportunities in tall wood construction. Come explore how wood building systems are a sustainable, cost-effective solution for tackling modern design needs.

The event will feature a tour of Promega Crossroads Center, showcasing an innovative mix of glulam and cross-laminated timber.

Architects, engineers, designers, developers, general contractors and anyone interested in wood design are encouraged to attend this informative seminar!

Attendees will gain knowledge on:

  • Overview of Wood-Based Products and Building Systems
  • Environmental Considerations of Wood
  • Mass Timber Technologies and Research
  • Building Codes
  • Case Studies
