The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Announces New Online Resource for Mass Timber Use in Tall Buildings

Thanks to a USDA Forest Service Grant, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has been able to develop an online resource for those interested in mass timber use in tall building construction. The aim of the CTBUH online resource is to explore the work and research regarding mass timber and its involvement with tall buildings. In a statement the CTBUH shares the details of the program. “What role will tall timber play in our quest for a future, lower-carbon built environment? CTBUH has committed to conducting three major research projects to provide guidance for the use of tall timber worldwide. The first of these projects, Timber Rising, has yielded four resources of interest to anyone involved in the design, classification, and selection of structural materials for urban environments.”
