Why spend your day with us?
If you’re considering mass timber for a project, this event will help you develop the expertise & industry connections to succeed. Learn from professionals who have designed, engineered and constructed mass timber buildings, including experienced installers and contractors who will also provide insight on the cost of mass timber buildings in the US.
Looking to hone your wood-frame expertise? Whether you’re working on a larger wood-frame building than you’ve designed before or you’re just beginning to explore wood’s advantages, this event has information that can help you design quality, sustainable and cost-effective wood buildings.
In 2017, Microsoft announced plans for a multi-year modernization project on its Redmond, WA campus. The project will create healthy, inspiring workplaces that support the needs of Microsoft employees. In this opening plenary, Microsoft will share the rationale for choosing mass timber and discuss how it will be utilized across the campus redevelopment project.
