Join BE-Ex to celebrate the publication of Mass Timber: Design and Research (ORO Editions, 2017) with author Susan Jones, one of the foremost voices in the mass timber dialogue today. A widely-discussed contemporary construction method, mass timber provides environmental, construction, and aesthetic benefits including a far smaller carbon footprint (compared to the production of concrete or steel), superior thermal performance, speed of assembly and positive human health outcomes. Mass Timber: Design and Research includes a short history of Pacific Northwest forestry, modern cross-laminated timber manufacturing practices, a comparison with standard construction practices, and the design of several building types using mass timber.
