Advancements in wood technologies have expanded the use of wood in design and construction. Mass timber products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) have emerged and offer opportunities in tall wood construction. Come explore how wood building systems are a sustainable, cost-effective solution for tackling modern design needs.  The event will feature a tour of Promega Crossroads Center, showcasing an innovative mix of glulam and cross-laminated timber.  Architects, engineers, designers, developers, general contractors and anyone interested in wood design are encouraged to attend this informative seminar! Event fulfills 4.5 AIA/CES credits.

Attendees will gain knowledge on:

    Overview of Wood-Based Products and Building Systems
    Environmental Considerations of Wood
    Mass Timber Technologies and Research
    Building Codes
    Case Studies
