Building Tours and Future Building Designs at Arkansas’ Flagship University
October 18, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm CDT
- In Person
Join WoodWorks at the University of Arkansas for a tour of two completed mass timber buildings and to learn about plans for two future buildings currently being designed. The tours will include Adohi Hall, the nation’s first large-scale mass timber live/learn student housing facility, which includes 708 beds, classrooms, practice and performance areas, and outdoor gathering spaces. Attendees will also tour the Library Annex, one of the nation’s first industrial-like high-bay mass timber warehouse buildings, designed to create more space in the main library by storing collections nearby.
Participants will learn firsthand from the university and project teams how they incorporated mass timber elements, including cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glue-laminated timber (glulam), in the code-compliant designs of these groundbreaking buildings. The benefits of mass timber will be discussed, including aesthetics, relative light weight, speed-of-construction, labor savings, and contributions to a low carbon footprint and healthy indoor environment.
Tours will be followed by a brief presentation on the campus’s future mass timber projects: the Institute for Integrative and Innovative Research (I3R), a high-tech research and laboratory building, and the Anthony Timberlands Center for Design and Materials Innovation, an addition to the Fay Jones School of Architecture that will be a center for innovation in wood design and product development. After the tours and presentations, engage with the design teams during a networking happy hour from 4:30 – 6:00 pm.
Attendees can earn 2.5 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 2.5 PDH credits or 0.25 ICC credits
