Regional In-Person Seminar (Oak Brook, IL)

Mass Timber: Making the Case to Developers and Owners

Would you like to pitch sustainable mass timber to a client? Are you wondering how mass timber might pencil in a project pro forma? If so, this presentation will provide insight on completing the value proposition for developers and owners. The aesthetic differentiation and biophilic benefits of mass timber have broad appeal to a wide range of stakeholders, from end users to ESG-investors. Professionals hoping to influence decisions to use mass timber will learn how this appeal can translate to return on investment in an overview of initial findings from WoodWorks’ Mass Timber Business Case Study series, written for the developer/owner/investor audience. This presentation will provide an overview of the case study series highlighting key takeaways. Developers/owners, architects, engineers and builders will all learn how mass timber can create value.

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.

Please join us after the seminar for lunch from 12:15pm-1:00pm.
