1 LEARNING HOUR | AIBC 1 CORE LU | AIA 1 LU | BC HOUSING 1 CPD INFORMAL
Today, Developers and Owners have high expectations when considering Mass Timber. They like that it is environmentally friendly, that it provides similar strength to steel and/or concrete within a smaller footprint and a lighter weight-bearing load, that it builds at faster completion times than conventional builds, that it is fire resistant and rated to North American code requirements. This session explores managing these expectations and the hurdles when integrating mass timber products into their new building projects.
Methods and solutions to develop a strategy are discussed which include a workflow process that is based on maintaining accuracy, good communication, and professional approach that inspire personal commitment from all team members including the owners/developers. Furthermore, we will cover applying design-assist, pre-construction and fabrication services during concept development, material procurement, sequencing and scheduling, risk management, project budgeting to being cost competitive, avoiding cost delays and additional costs, smooth installation processes, and a look at the mass timber product options.
This session will be presented by an industry professional from Mass Timber Services.
