Breakout Presentation Topic:
Mass Timber Optimization: Best practices based on the analysis of mass timber projects across Canada, US and EuropeThere are a number of critical elements that predict the success of mass timber builds. Like with any emerging industry, there has been a mix of successes and difficulties. To date, however, there remain few resources that inform owners, architects and planners about how to examine mass timber management in its entirety. With this in mind, this presentation will review the most important steps to keeping a project on time and on budget based on a case history of projects. In addition, there will be an emphasis on the unique mass timber issues that pertain to building in the eastern US and Canada.

Key points:

  • What to look out for on your first mass timber project
  • How to assemble the right team
  • How to create a robust process
  • How to engage owners and investors
