WEBINAR – Solid Wood: New Trends in Mass Timber Architecture, Technology and Design

September 7, 2016 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm




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

Through the rise of mass timber, one of the world’s oldest building materials has been reimagined as a sustainable alternative to concrete and steel. Innovations in solid wood building systems, which include large engineered wood members such as glue-laminated timber (GLT), laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and cross-laminated timber (CLT), have created new opportunities for wood, whether that means going taller, spanning farther, or building faster. Driven by wood’s light environmental footprint, large-scale wood buildings around the world are helping to spur building code changes, improve wood-based economies and demonstrate the untapped potential of this versatile material. This presentation will provide insight into these new, exciting architectural developments through detailed case studies that will expand your perception of wood’s possibilities.


Joseph Mayo, AIA, LEED AP, Mahlum Architects, Inc.

Joseph Mayo is an architect in Seattle and author of the book Solid Wood: Mass Timber Architecture, Technology and Design. His portfolio encompasses a variety of building types, spanning schools, student housing, university academic buildings and hospitals. An advocate for the use of mass timber, Joe has worked with the City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development and Washington State non-profit Forterra to lead investigations into the use of wood that transcend current building codes. He has also been a jury member for wood design awards, served on local and national AIA Committees, co-authored a research paper exploring the economic viability of tall wood buildings, and assisted in teaching mass timber courses. Joe also advised the Mahlum design team regarding use of mass timber for the new Richard Woodcock Center for Education at Western Oregon University.
