The International Mass Timber Conference is the largest global gathering of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and other mass timber experts in the world. There is a special focus on manufacturing and mid to high-rise design and construction.
EM Structural discussed design challenges with engineers that have successfully completed mass timber projects, talked through supply chain logistics with contractors and mass timber suppliers, and consulted with industry experts on the steps needed to make these projects more of a reality on the east coast.
EM Structural is now well versed in the intricacies of mass timber design and construction. As more jurisdictions adopt the new 2021 International Building Code, that allows up to 18 stories of timber construction, EM Structural is poised and ready to cost effective structural solutions for this exciting new frontier in construction.
