TREET – The World’s Tallest Timber Building
Marina Trifkovic, Master of Architecture, ARTEC, Norway

This ambitious project shows that it is possible to build urban housing with high density and at the same time use environmentally friendly materials. The project doesn’t “invent” anything new, it simply applies products that already exist in a new way, pushing the limit of what has been done before. Through the perspective of the architect, attendees will see the advantages and challenges of timber high-rise construction and prefabrication. Treet is a residential building located in Bergen, Norway. The structural design utilized laminated timber. The apartments were created as modules off-site. When completed (Fall 2015), the building will be 49,4m from entrance level.

Mass Timber – Engineering Fabrication and Erection

Lucas Epp, BASc (Hons), Head of Engineering, StructureCraft Builders Inc., Vancouver, BC

Timber is in the midst of being rediscovered as a primary building material. With the advent of mass timber products which are economical and reliable, new applications are arising across all building and structure types. Knowing which mass timber product is most suitable for different situations is key to achieving buildable, performing and cost-efficient structures. An emphasis on prefabrication of these timber panels complete with integrated services enables fast erection times and high quality control.
