The Big Buzz on Tall Wood

Hosted by WoodWorks and the USGBC Nevada.

As examples of successful tall wood buildings proliferate worldwide, many U.S. architects are considering how to leverage wood’s sustainability and other advantages through their own tall wood designs. Intended as a practical overview for those interested in pursuing wood’s potential, this presentation will cover the “who, what, when and where” of mass timber buildings. Following a brief discussion of history and motivators, existing tall wood projects will be used to illustrate mass timber and hybrid components, high-rise structural design concepts, and lessons learned regarding cost and schedule. Topics will also include building code avenues for alternate designs, and available resources and support.
