WoodWorks: Mass Timber in the Midwest: Value + Distinction through the Lens of Two Projects

8:30 AM
McCormick & Schmick’s | 448 West 47th Street Kansas City, MO 64112 Map

Inspiration for building designs comes in many forms. For some, the desire to use mass timber is anchored in its sustainability and light carbon footprint. For others, speed of construction and aesthetics are the driving factors. This panel presentation will examine its use from multiple perspectives. Beginning with a baseline of practical knowledge, it will cover building code allowances, and design and detailing steps for fire resistance, acoustics, construction type selection, structural grid, and more. From there, two architects will share their insights through the lens of completed mass timber projects: The University of Arkansas Stadium Drive Student Residence Hall in Fayetteville, AR and the East Grand office building in Des Moines, IA. They’ll discuss key issues from design through construction, including fire and life safety, code-compliance, material procurement, design trade coordination, and construction efficiency.
