Tall Mass Timber Mastery

Insights on Tall Mass Timber projects in the U.S.

In a short period of time, the number of tall mass timber projects in the U.S.—both built and in design—has grown rapidly. As a group that’s provided technical assistance on many of these projects, WoodWorks has seen a variety of reasons for the increase in interest and use. Cost, aesthetics, framing configurations, code paths, and sustainability are all factors that influence how and when mass timber is used. This video shares the experiences of three mass timber project teams and points to the future of how tall mass timber can help solve housing needs.
