This webinar will explore innovative uses of wood in building design, profiling three unique projects across applications (commercial, multifamily, mixed use), each of which embodies the aesthetic, environmental, and structural strengths of wood as a building material. The presentations will touch upon such topics as designing innovative and repeatable mass timber commercial structures, code compliance, meeting construction costs, challenges of tight labor markets, as well as wood’s role in advancing sustainable, healthy, and beautiful spaces.
Steve Cavanaugh, AIA, principal at award-winning DLR Group, will provide an overview of timber, technology, and transit (T3) projects, including the 20,000-square-foot T3 North Loop building in Minneapolis, which is the largest mass timber building constructed in recent U.S. history.
Thomas Robinson, founding partner of Portland-based LEVER Architecture, will present on Albina Yard, a mixed-use project that is the first office building in the United States to use domestically fabricated cross-laminated timber and framework. The winner of the U.S. Tall Wood Building Competition and recipient of a $1.5-million grant, the project exemplifies wood’s role in advancing sustainable, healthy, and aesthetically dynamic spaces.
Nick Seglie, AIA, LEED AP, senior design architect at Gensler, will present on MOTO, the 64-unit mixed-use boutique apartment building in Denver, which offers a unique wood design. The project, built with wood to aid in speed of construction and aesthetic appeal, was recently recognized by WoodWorks as a 2017 Wood Design Award winner.
The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion focused on how ambitious projects using wood construction address several key issues, including:
