Finding Opportunity in Changing Markets

ADVANCEMENTS IN MASS TIMBER & WOOD-FRAME BUILDING DESIGN

June 3, 2020

VIRTUAL WOOD DESIGN SYMPOSIUM

Market insights, project case studies, and practical wood design knowledge—all with an emphasis on the eastern half of the country. That’s what you’ll get at this virtual symposium on the design and construction of modern wood buildings. >> More on why you should attend.

THE SCHEDULE

We’ve designed our schedule to fit yours! Flexible registration options include morning only, afternoon only, or the full day. Whichever you choose, you won’t have to miss the special keynote presentation: Potential Impacts of COVID-19 on the US Construction Market by Richard Branch, Chief Economist for Dodge Data and Analytics.  He will share his perspectives on the US construction outlook, how global supply chain disruptions may cause a change in the future of construction, and what the design and construction industry may experience in terms of decline and regrowth over the next 18 months.

All times are Eastern Time.
