What does it take to efficiently engineer and build mass timber buildings? How can timber be integrated into a project so that the structure is cost-competitive, while still maintaining the architectural vision, elegance and quality? We will explore these questions and also look at the features and key design parameters when using DLT, the all wood mass timber product. Larger mass timber commercial buildings such as The Soto Office in San Antonio will be examined, as well as the use of mass timber in several local schools and community centres.
