Description:

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.
