Regional In-Person Seminar and Tour (Atlanta, GA)
Join WoodWorks for this two-part educational seminar and tour.
Part I – Seminar: Building Sustainably: Wood’s Role in Healthy Forests and Healthy Buildings
Explore the benefits of using wood products in construction, from our forests to wood buildings. In addition to their renewability, wood products require less embodied energy to manufacture than other structural building materials. This presentation will discuss three topics: forestry and the impact of wood use on forest health, the relevance of wood to green building rating systems, and biophilic design strategies for healthy buildings. It will answer questions such as: Where do our trees and forests grow? How have forests changed over time? What is the relationship between people and forests—now and in the past? How does wood contribute to biophilic design principles? What is the purpose of green building rating systems and how do they vary? How can wood products be used in construction to gain points and credits within a number of green building rating systems?
Part II – Tour: Campus 244
Campus 244 is a forward-thinking mixed-use development project bringing together restaurants, hotel, and office spaces.
The office building consists of an existing 3-storey building which will be redeveloped to include a 2-storey mass timber over-build addition. The large floorplates and vaulted 16’ mass timber ceilings will create an inviting and biophilic space for future tenants.
