CLT Solutions: Addressing Common Design Challenges

Now available to North American building designers, cross laminated timber (CLT) offers the structural simplicity needed for cost-effective projects, as well as benefits such as fast installation, reduced waste, improved thermal performance and design versatility. This presentation will cover some of the more challenging aspects of CLT building design, including fire and life safety, lateral and seismic design, acoustic performance and building envelope. Resources available to design and construction professionals, such as the new US CLT Handbook, will also be discussed.

Mass Timber Construction Management: Economics, Logistics & Risk Analysis

How do contractors answer the increasing demand for mass timber buildings from architects and ownership groups? Growing this budding industry requires an understanding from both designers and seasoned construction professionals of how to construct efficiently, navigate jurisdictions new to mass timber, and manage the procurement risks to deliver the dream of a new and optimized building system. This session will introduce mass timber products and building systems then consider why some mass timber projects never pass the concept stage, what can mitigate risk and improve financial feasibility, and how the development, architectural, engineering, and construction community can achieve success with mass timber projects of various scales and typologies. Particular emphasis will be given to preconstruction coordination, holistic approaches to costing and scheduling studies, project delivery methods, and how to achieve the highest level of cost efficiency.
