The Shifting Landscape of Mass Timber (1.5 LU | HSW)

Join industry experts for a lunchtime webinar focusing on Mass Timber. Get the latest insights on design, construction, responsible sourcing and carbon tracking for this emerging technology. Event hosted by AIASF COTE in collaboration with The Wood Products Council.

As the design and construction industries shift their efforts toward zero embodied carbon, Mass Timber stands out as a revolutionary solution. Building with mass timber not only acts as a carbon sink when compared to concrete and steel construction, it also offers biophilic appeals and potential construction cost and time savings. It might even be a key solution to the west coast housing crisis! Join us in conversation with a panel of design, construction and industry experts who will share their project experience and insights about this new technology, and help designers specify and source mass timber in alignment with the technology’s zero/positive carbon intent, while upholding responsible forestry stewardship. A Q&A session will wrap up the event.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the cost benefit analysis factors for a mass timber project. (site/staging constraints, rapid construction to decrease schedule, project scale, etc.)
  • Articulate the human health benefits of mass timber.
  • Learn how to measure and analyze mass timber embodied carbon emissions for a project.
  • Discuss how to responsibly source and look for a right partner to implement a mass timber project.
