Mass timber is gaining momentum nationwide and the mountains and forests of Utah are no exception. Innovative materials like cross-laminated timber and glue-laminated timber are being used to bring a modern wood aesthetic to a variety of project types, and Utah forest products are being used in the manufacture of these materials. This multi-faceted
workshop will examine mass timber from forest to frame, beginning with a discussion of sustainable forest management and the positive impact of regionally-sourced materials on Utah communities. It will cover design topics related to codes and applications, ﬁ re resistance, and wind and seismic resilience, the use of wood in USU Botanical Center, and legislative efforts to further mass timber in the state. Attendees can expect to gain a top to bottom understanding of the status of mass timber in Utah and beyond, and leave with the design knowledge needed to pursue a mass timber project.
