October 2022 Webinar

Anna Anderson, Ben Ridderbos, and Matt Kantner present, "Designing in Mass Timber - Current Work and Lessons Learned" facilitated by Brian Craig.

As mass timber demand continues to grow in Michigan - and the U.S., generally - architects and engineers are learning how to design beautiful, structurally sound, code-compliant, and cost-effective buildings with these emerging materials. The relationship of architecture and structural engineering is key in all built projects, but perhaps nowhere more so than in works of mass timber. In this conversation, facilitated by architect Brian Craig, we'll hear from architects Anna Anderson and Ben Ridderbos and physical/structural engineer Matt Kanter, who will share current work and lessons learned in designing and executing some prominent mass timber projects. Expect case studies, robust discussion, and of course, time for your questions.
