    Mass Timber Market Updates - Jan 2022 - Week One

    Mass Timber Market Updates - Jan 2022 - Week One

    In this week's episode, Stephanus van der Westhuyzen, a structural engineer at Zutari, has carried out a research study on the economic viability of multi-storey mass timber buildings in South Africa, focusing on a development cost comparison between mass timber frame and reinforced concrete frame building. Safety can be further enhanced if you use timber that has been treated with a specialist flame retardant, which will provide the material with an invisible shield to help protect against fire. The Edison, a 15-story building with around 200 units coming to 1005 N. Edison St., will take about 16 months to complete, with a goal to be open by late summer 2023. Beginning in April, Mitsubishi Estate Co. will sell single-story houses made exclusively from Japan-grown timber. Construction of the new Terminus at District 56 commercial building has been completed in Langford, B.C. Structurlam Mass Timber Corporation worked on the five-storey mass timber post-and-beam building in partnership with Design Build Services and Aspect Structural Engineers.  A new article from Paul Kremer, our founder, for the New Year! Welcome to 2022. Paul writes " There are several large companies around the world focusing on mass timber construction as a viable alternative solution in meeting corporate sustainability objectives and measures in property development. Be it, a corporate head office, a campus building, or even a retail shopping precinct, the evidence is mounting that mass timber solutions are a pivotal and necessary response to meeting the reductions of C02 emission in construction, and beyond." Find out why they are changing the way we all construct.

    Mass Timber Market Updates - Dec 2021 - Week Fiftytwo

    Wow, we made it! 52 weeks in a row all about mass timber construction news and current events! It's a lot of news and made even more special when you think back only five years ago, I struggled to post more than 20 news items in a month! Now we are averaging 100 per month. Happy New Year to you all! I wish you joy and prosperity in 2022! Red Stag is excited to be able to offer a unique, exciting opportunity to an exceptional Operations Manager in the Engineered Wood Product (EWP) sector. If you are an exceptional Operations Manager or similar, here is a great opportunity to drive a brand new Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glue Laminated Timber (GLT) plant in Rotorua.  Planned on the site of the Toronto Police Service Property Unit — a stretch home to mostly light industrial uses west of the denser Town Centre area — the building will stand out from its nondescript surroundings with a sleek bunker-like exterior that harnesses the sun to power the critical paramedic equipment housed within. The structure of the first floor is mainly Glue-laminated timber (GLT) , and corewall system is concrete structure. The sequential wooden structure system, just like the roots of orchids, grows freely and regularly, supporting the main body of the building.

    In this episode, happy holidays to all our listeners. The 25-story Ascent, 700 E. Kilbourn Ave., staged its topping off ceremony recently. That marks the building reaching its highest point, with the roof now in place. The $80 million, 259-unit high-rise is being constructed with a technique known as mass timber or cross-laminated timber. The very first Mass Timber and Net Zero Carbon institutional building in all of Ontario is well underway at Centennial College's Progress Campus in Scarborough. Designed by Belfast-based OPAL Architecture and built in collaboration with OPAL Build, a sister company to OPAL Architecture, the middle school building is built to the Passive House standard for energy efficiency.

    Mass Timber Construction Podcast Special Guest - Riccardo Pedroni and Mikkel Eskildsen - Marmormolen

    Mass Timber Construction Podcast Special Guest - Riccardo Pedroni and Mikkel Eskildsen - Marmormolen

    Henning Larsen and Ramboll have unveiled a new large timber building for Copenhagen. The project, dubbed Marmormolen, will be one of the largest contemporary wood structures in Denmark and combine office, retail, and public programs on the Nordhavn waterfront. Surrounding the building will be  a green plaza, rooftop gardens, promenades, and a waterfront park. On this episode we speak to Riccardo Pedroni and Mikkel Eskildsen about the project.  Riccardo Pedroni is a Senior Structural Engineer in the High-Rise Buildings Sector at Ramboll who joined the company as Graduate Engineer in February 2014. He is Italian and has graduated at Politecnico of Milan in October 2013 with a final project dealing with the dynamics of an offshore wind turbine. Before graduating, Riccardo was involved as intern in City Life project in Milan for the whole summer studying the settlements of the piling foundation of Isozaki Tower and producing a feasibility study on a television antenna on top of the building.

    Mikkel specialises in the early design phases where he has a particular focus on the creative process, concept and project development - from analyses to idea and building concept. Mikkel functions as lead designer for larger teams - both in competitions and in more complex co-creation developments processes with end users and investors. He is responsible for new business opportunities and collaborations in Denmark. He has won both national as well as international competitions, projects and exhibitions where his special ability to create both aesthetic, conceptual and realisable projects has been brought into play.

    Mass Timber Market Updates - Dec 2021 - Week Fifty

    In this episode, a big residential development consisting of two towers is expected to sprout next spring in downtown San Jose next to the mixed-use transit village that Google has proposed. Roundtable discussion on fire safety and net zero. A proposed 40-storey hybrid wood tower in Vancouver, possibly the tallest in the world, still needs to clear neighbourhood planning approvals and complete design refinements, but the city is “quite enthusiastic about the project,” largely for its low-carbon and high-performance attributes. Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) is shutting down Sidewalk Labs after the founder and chief executive of the unit developing smart-city technology disclosed that doctors say he may have the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease, a deadly neurodegenerative condition.
