In this episode we chat with Senior Lecturer Alex Schreyer and Associate Professor Peggi Clouston who are both tremendously accomplished in their fields. Please click the links to read their full bios, but I will say that between the two of them there is a tremendous amount of study, research, practice, and publications on various topics within timber construction. They bring an expertise in Mass Timber that is unparalleled in our area.
Alex was kind enough to offer me a tour of the Olver Design Building which is a first of it’s kind Mass Timber academic building that consists of an exposed glulam frame, CLT shafts and CLT and Concrete composite floors. We talk quite a bit about the building itself, the construction process, cost , and Mass Timber in general. If you want an education on the newest trend in construction it’s your lucky day. Enjoy the show.
