Practical and Inspirational: Exposing the Potential of Heavy Timber Construction

Offering a mix of both the practical and inspirational, this presentation focuses on the use of heavy timber in applications such as offices and schools, as well as civic, industrial, mid-rise/multi-residential and other building types. Included will be a review of non-structural provisions in the International Building Code and a discussion of structural component and connection methods available. Example projects ranging from typical to unique will be used to illustrate the range of modern timber design solutions available and their ability to provide unlimited aesthetic opportunities for almost any building type.
