What’s New and What’s Next for Wood Design and Construction

Practical Education for Successful Projects 

May 27, 2021 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm ET

More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the building development, design and construction communities continue to experience unprecedented change.

Demands for multi-unit housing continue to rise, along with the cost of land, materials and insurance. Meanwhile, the need for aggressive climate action and healthier tenant environments calls for rapid evolution in building design. To respond to these demands, project teams are taking a hyper-focused approach to cost and achieving design and product efficiencies.

Join WoodWorks on May 27th for a half-day online wood design symposium. REGISTER.

This symposium will examine how project teams best respond to these challenges and provide practical education to help realize successful projects.

You’ll hear from a dynamic mix of speakers in 12 micro-sessions with panel topics tailored to architects, structural engineers, developers, contractors and sustainability consultants.
