Mass Timber: Cross Laminated Timber Blasts its Way into Government Construction

The US Government now has another reason to use mass timber solutions such as cross-laminated timber for military and civilian projects. Agencies such as the Department of Defense are increasingly being drawn to benefits that include improved constructability, enhanced rural economies, disaster resilience, carbon neutrality, occupant comfort and now, blast resistance. Intended for design and construction professionals working on government projects, this presentation will demonstrate how solid timber structural systems can meet requirements of the International Building Codes as well as antiterrorism regulations stipulated in the Uniform Facilities Criteria (UFC 4-010-01). In addition to a review of recent blast testing, discussion will include structural, fire, acoustic and building envelope design with an emphasis on government building applications.
