Mass Timber Revolution with CSCE

March 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
CSCE (Canadian Society for Civil Engineering) Toronto is event.


Event title: Mass Timber Revolution, on Thursday, March 23rd 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Event blurb: 
Calling all structural engineers! Wood buildings were traditionally limited to four storeys by Canadian building codes. The limit for timber construction was increased in 2022 to 12 stories based on modern materials and fire engineering innovations. Mass timber products such as glued-laminated timber and cross-laminated timber are large format elements that are pre-fabricated, CNC machined and can be installed quickly on-site in almost any weather conditions. These and other innovative wood products are at the centre of a transformation in the construction industry where we expect higher quality, offsite fabrication, along with faster and quieter site work with less construction waste.

Join CSCE Toronto Section – Canadian Society for Civil Engineering on March 23rd at 6 PM, as David Moses from Moses Structural Engineers Inc. and Steven Street from Wood Works! provide an overview on the shift in the construction industry with respect to engineering analysis for structural design for gravity, wind, and earthquakes and the fire safety requirements citing many recent examples from Canada and the United States.Join our event page, and sign up using the link below
