About the Project

The project site is part of an approved and permitted master plan. Currently referred to as Parcel B16, this site will be developed into an eight-story multifamily residential building with ground floor retail space. The project team will execute a conceptual design of a mass timber structural system for the proposed building. This will include specifying CLT floor slabs, sizing glulam beams, girders, and columns, and sizing required foundations. It will also include a detailed design of important structural connections (CLT to beams, beams to girders, girders to columns) which are often a critical aspect of mass timber design. These connections will be reviewed from a structural, architectural, fire safety, cost, and permitting perspective. The project team will also execute a conceptual design of a steel structure for the same building. These two conceptual structures will be compared on the basis of cost, erection time, and embodied carbon per square foot.
