WEBINAR – Survey of International Tall Wood Buildings
February 11, 2015 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern
Over the past several years, a number of tall wood projects have been completed around the world, demonstrating the successful application of mass timber technologies. To assist North American building designers interested in the potential of these technologies, architecture firm Perkins+Will recently undertook a survey of 10 completed projects in several countries. Through interviews and site visits, the goal was learn from early adopters and present common lessons based on the experiences of four key stakeholder groups: the developer/owner, design team, authorities having jurisdiction and construction team. This seminar will present the results of that survey, focusing on the development, design, approval and construction process, as well as issues related to insurance, financing and building performance.
