Insurance for Mass Timber Construction: Assessing Risk and Providing Answers

Since it became evident that insurance companies are reluctant to provide insurance for mass timber buildings, WoodWorks has taken a lead role in addressing the issue. This paper is intended for developer/owners seeking insurance for mass timber buildings, design/construction teams looking to make their projects more insurable, and insurance professionals looking for information on safety and performance. It is part of a larger WoodWorks initiative to address insurance barriers to mass timber projects.
