Planning For Rapid Assembly of Mass Timber Buildings

18 November, 2020 @ 17 h 50 min - 19 h 30 min

Over the past several years, a number of tall wood projects have been completed around the world, demonstrating successful applications of new wood and mass timber technologies. With rising demand for new urban buildings, and increased interest in sustainable and efficient construction, the potential for tall wood buildings is expected to grow. Building taller with wood is not only gaining traction as a viable building method, but rather has also shown to be cost effective, contribute to well-being, and reduce carbon emissions.

Brent Olund (Vice President of Sustainable Construction of Urban One Builders) will share an overview on the Planning of Mass Timber projects for rapid erection. The presentation will have a focus on items such as Value of Time for early project delivery, Mass Timber Structural Systems Options and Selection, Mass Timber Member Size tolerances by Type, Tolerance Recovery Details in Connection Design, BIM, Offsite Fabrication and CNC Milling and Just-In-Time Delivery.
