Mass Timber Influencers

  • Share:
Name: Mass Timber Influencers
Date: May 24, 2018
Time: 7:30 AM - 11:30 AM PDT
Event Description:

 

Mass timber is gaining momentum in BC and beyond – how do we encourage a shift towards a sustainable, low-carbon future?


The growing field of mass timber is a fundamental disruption to conventional concrete and steel building systems. As early adopters, Perkins+Will has pioneered the use of mass timber in BC and beyond through several precedent-setting projects.
 
Perkins+Will is excited to host a moderated breakfast session to learn about mass timber and discuss your perceptions with a panel of industry experts. As leaders in key ‘influencer’ industries such as leasing, financing and insurance in BC, you have a significant impact on building design and construction, and we would like to engage you in the growing shift towards a sustainable, low-carbon future.
 
In preparation for the Mass Timber Influencers event, we are surveying current trends and perceptions towards mass timber. Your feedback is extremely valuable in helping understand how mass timber is perceived, and how we can remove barriers to its adoption.
