WEBINAR – Advanced Geometry in Urban Environments: An Evolution of Public Landmarks

June 10, 2015 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm




Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern

In the last few years, North America has seen advances in applications of timber in the built environment that are literally changing the way we design and fabricate. An engineering perspective on the complex geometries now achievable with timber systems will be explored through Canadian examples of public landmarks such as the Wayne Gretzky Sports Arena, Art Gallery of Ontario, Waterfront Wavedecks and new Lansdowne Stadium in Ottawa. Discussion will also focus on how innovative products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) and composite concrete-wood systems, as well as growth in the mid-rise market, are creating even more opportunities to advance design in urban environments.


David Moses, PhD, PEng, PE, LEED AP, Principal, Moses Structural Engineers Inc

David leads a structural engineering firm that champions innovative and collaborative design.  With over 20 years of experience, he has been involved in hundreds of projects in Canada and the United States, including the Art Gallery of Ontario renovation. In 2011, he received the Forest Products Society’s “2011 Wood Engineering Award” and, in 2009 and 2013, the WoodWorks! Ontario “Wood Advocate – Engineer” award. His firm designs buildings to LEED and Passive House standards and designs using new types of materials such as ultra-high performance concrete and cross-laminated timber. Through teaching, research, publications, awards and speaking events, David is actively involved in the industry. He is vice-chair of SPE900 “Best Practices for Solar Photovoltaic Rooftop Installations,” and sits on CSA code committees in the Forest Products Sector.
