    Mass Timber Master Class

    Mass Timber Master Class

    In this episode of the Mass Construction Show I speak with Ricky McLain, Senior Technical Director at Woodworks, a national nonprofit organization that works primarily with architects, structural engineers, and developers as a resource to provide education and 1-1 project-specific design support. We go beyond aesthetics and biophilia to discuss some practical benefits of mass timber for construction managers, the implications of adopting a hybrid model to combine mass timber with steel and/or concrete, and what the current supply chain issues look like for mass timber. 
    Ricky provides an overview of massive timber, not as a product, rather as an umbrella term used to describe several products. He shares details about the panel construction and discusses how various products differ in how they are manufactured and used in construction. He gives great insight into the fire resistance capabilities and how mass timber can be used to accommodate the potential for fire. He covers code changes that catalyzed the growing conversation about mass timber over the last five years. 
    Ricky points out that there are local programs that offer funding to support the use of timber as a means for reducing embodied carbon of projects, and he also explains how working with mass timber can help companies overcome the barriers to their projects from zoning issues and constraints.

    Newburgh Building Shells w/ Liz McEnaney

    Newburgh Building Shells w/ Liz McEnaney

    In this episode of the Mass Construction Show I speak with Liz McEnaney, founder of the Hudson Valley Collaborative. What Liz does can most easily be described as urban design with a very heavy emphasis on architectural history and historic preservation. She works on projects engaging the public to discover how they imagine components of their own communities and neighborhoods so that those ideas can be incorporated into plans for the space. Liz explains how making a documentary got her into this field of work and describes the goal of the Hudson Valley Collaborative, which serves communities in New York that are analogous to the old mills towns we have in Massachusetts. Regular listeners will draw parallels to the conversations about resiliency that we've had with Greg Garvin. A current an ongoing project for Liz is her work with building shells in the town of Newburgh, NY. Liz talks specifically about being proactive in thinking about the promise of these communities, helping the people who live there learn how to identify when a building is at risk of becoming a shell, why it's necessary to care about that, what can be done to address it, and how to go about that work.

    Cannabis Construction w/ Peter Regan of Vantage Builders

    Cannabis Construction w/ Peter Regan of Vantage Builders

    In this episode of the Mass Construction Show Peter and I discuss Cannabis Construction. He explains what falls under the umbrella of cannabis, specifically explaining grow facilities, extraction spaces, and dispensaries, which are all analogous to other sectors that we serve in construction like manufacturing, commercial kitchens, lab space and retail. Peter describes the importance of pre-construction involvement, giving details of what to look for at the site assessment phase. When he says that a cannabis site is heavy on MEP, you might be shocked to find out just how heavy he means. He also lends some expertise in terms of what’s critical for a successful project, offering up some cool industry-specific details from how and why a grow facility is designed to respect the circadian rhythm of the plants to mitigating the threat we dare not speak of in agriculture-- mold. We close with some ideas about what the industry future looks like, and some of those ideas that may have sounded a little far fetched before the episode will probably sound a more likely than not by the end.

    I’d love it if you could give the podcast a rating or write a review.  These things really matter when it comes to growing the podcast and getting the kinds of guest we want to hear from. So every little bit helps! Enjoy the show!

    Scheduling of the Future?

    Scheduling of the Future?

    In this episode of the Mass Construction Show I speak with Rene Morkos, Founder and CEO of ALICE Technologies about how construction management firms can move from a traditional fixed CPM scheduling method to a place where we can input tasks and parameters. Then ALICE can run simulations of your project to determine the shortest duration for your job and export them to a P6 schedule for you.
    On another note, we're stuck on 85 ratings, and we've been there for months. I'd love to get to 100. If you listen on Apple then it would be great if you could hit one of those rating stars and help us get to 100.

This is a great podcast for the Mass Constuction Industry. Joe Kelly does a great job of bringing on a variety of industry experts on a variety of topics. Often on topics that I would not have thought of o my own. Worth a listen if you are in the industry.
