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.

Opportunities for the built environment to help address carbon-related issues are at the forefront of discussions within the building design and construction community. The spotlight once held by operational energy efficiency has shifted to material choice and embodied carbon—and, in particular, which building products should be specified to achieve a more sustainable structure. This course takes a brief look at the use of wood products in construction and their ability to store carbon long term. It will also consider common questions related to the sustainable management of North American forests from which these products are sourced.
