Key Early Design Decisions for Mass Timber

Mass timber is a unique building material and, to set a project up for success, there are some critical decisions that should be made as early as possible. These decisions can have a big impact on cost and can either increase or limit opportunities later in design. In this session, we’ll walk through early project decisions and design steps, focusing on how to optimize projects for mass timber and how one early decision can influence others. Topics will include construction types, fire ratings, column grids and beam/panel spans, acoustics and MEP integration.
