Making the Magic Happen with Alternative Solutions

Time 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Webinar Description

Mass timber buildings have experienced a spike in popularity among designers and developers. The interest is driven by the move to more sustainable building practices and potential for panelized construction. Other drivers to wood are site-specific challenges such as building weight and site access. This presentation discusses a series of projects including 77 Wade Avenue in Toronto (eight-storey mass timber and steel high-bred building), V6 by R Hauz, (six-storey CLT building), and Toronto Regional Conservation Authority (TRCA’s) new headquarters (four-storey mass timber)—all of which have their challenges and design solutions. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn about mass timber.
  2. Understand the building code implications.
  3. Learn about alternative solutions.
  4. Gain knowledge from case studies.
