WORKSHOP: USING MASS TIMBER IN NEW CONSTRUCTION PROJECTSNorth Tahoe
Due to high strength, dimensional stability and carbon storage and other environmental benefits, mass timber building products are quickly becoming materials of choice for sustainably-minded designers. Attendees will learn about structural performance, fire resistance, acoustics, and energy efficiency. Other topics will include detailing and construction best practices, lessons learned from completed projects and trends for the increased use of mass timber products in the future. Information about existing building code allowances and existing opportunities to design, permit, and incorporate mass timber products into new construction projects will also be discussed. A short site visit will be included to view California’s first structure being constructed entirely of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT).
