SESSION 3 - ADVANCEMENTS IN MASS TIMBER MANUFACTURING & LESSONS LEARNED ON PROJECTS

For AIA/AIBC learning credits, please complete this brief quiz after watching the recording.

Leading architects, engineers, designers and developers around the world, including here in North America, are increasingly seeking high-quality, custom mass timber products to create sustainable, safe and stunning energy-efficient architecture. In this session you will discover North America’s most advanced, vertically-integrated, multi-species mass timber facility. Through their state-of-the-art 110,000 sf plant in Castlegar, B.C., Kalesnikoff Mass Timber and Lumber produces efficient, responsible and safe Cross-Laminated Timber panels (GLT), and Glulam beams that are innovating traditional building practices and significantly reducing the carbon footprints of new buildings. You will also learn about Integrated Delivery Services and how these world class facilities can handle your entire range of fabrication requirements from tree harvest to final installation.

This session will also be about lessons learned on mass timber and other wood-based technologies used on several new B.C. projects. On5, is a four-storey building located in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood uses insulative cross-laminated timber (CLT) assemblies along with a damage-resistant seismic design built to a Passive House standard. Also discussed will be the information resources available to architects and specifiers on wood design and innovation through naturally:wood.
