Breaking Convention with Timber Offices
Great solutions often lie beyond convention. Consider that most offices in the U.S. could be built with a wood structure yet this option goes largely unexplored. Many designers assume they’re limited to concrete and steel for workplace environments—because that’s the common default—but, in fact, wood construction can accommodate the space and performance needs of office occupancies, while providing advantages such as speed, cost savings, and reduced environmental impact. Focusing on common design considerations (e.g., layout flexibility, land-use constraints, and market classification) this presentation will examine the potential for light-frame and heavy timber structural solutions. Topics will include building code opportunities related to fire and life safety, structural design and layout, and cost.
