As of 2023, 1,693 multifamily, commercial, and institutional mass timber projects had been constructed or were in design across all fifty states. Get inspired and learn what your peers are doing when it comes to innovative mass timber construction with these mapping tools.
Stay current with Think Wood and WoodWorks’ updated Volume 2 of the popular Mass Timber Design Manual. The must-have manual features 10+ new case studies of cutting-edge timber projects, expert Q+As, new technical resources on mass timber construction management, and more.
This practical guide—with its emphasis on real-life applications—gives project teams, general contractors, and installers a framework for the planning, procurement, and management of mass timber projects. While intended primarily for GCs and installers, it is a useful reference for all members of a mass timber project team and anyone interested in the construction of mass timber buildings.
A complement to the U.S. Mass Timber Construction Manual, these training modules will close knowledge gaps and help get contractors, subcontractor erectors, and installers up to speed when it comes to quality mass timber installation methods.
Mass Timber Cost and Design Optimization Checklists
Follow best practices and ensure maximum value with these convenient checklists designed to guide coordination between architects and engineers as they work with general contractors, construction managers, estimators, fabricators, and installers to make cost-driven decisions on mass timber projects.
Mass Timber Project Questionnaire for Builder’s Risk Insurance
Preemptively address insurance-related concerns with this editable form that construction, development, and design teams can use to collect mass timber project-specific information to share with insurance providers.
Managing vibrations in mass timber buildings is crucial. Use this comprehensive, approachable guide to ensure your next mass timber project follows ideal design recommendations that minimize the impact of vibrations and ensures long-term occupant comfort.
Follow the 11 steps for determining structural and fire protection, special inspection, energy, sound transmission, and construction fire safety requirements for tall mass timber buildings in accordance with the 2021 International Building Code (IBC) with this handy four-page CodeMaster tool. Developed by the International Code Council, AWC, and WoodWorks, the CodeMasters are brief, laminated reference guides for the code-compliant design of wood buildings.
Measure Your Mass Timber Project’s Carbon Footprint: WoodWorks Carbon Calculator
Increasingly clients and occupants want to understand the environmental impacts of buildings. Estimate the wood carbon footprint of your next mass timber project, including how much carbon is stored in the wood, greenhouse gas emissions avoided by not using steel or concrete, and the amount of time it takes U.S. and Canadian forests to grow that volume of wood.
For the first time, building owners who choose to build with carbon-storing materials, such as mass timber, can issue carbon offsets, putting a dollar value to the environmental benefit realized. The offsets can be retained by the building owner or sold on a carbon market—essentially giving owners a “cash rebate” for choosing to use a carbon-storing material like wood.
Get an insider’s look into the business case and financial models behind successful mass timber projects. From detailed timelines and product strategy to investment highlights and quantitative overviews, mass timber design teams share how their projects penciled out.
