Harnessing technology for more sustainable buildings: bringing mass timber and life cycle analysis to scale
Credits: 1 HSW, 1 LU
Sponsored By: Katerra
Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
Craig Curtis, FAIA, and Jim Nicolow, FAIA, LEED Fellow will outline two exciting initiatives to ramp industry production and reduce the carbon footprint of construction. First, the successful implementation of LCA systems to comprehensively track and evaluate a building’s environmental performance across the fragmented design, building products manufacturing, and construction industries. Second, pulling a Lever on Climate Change – CLT at Scale. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is fundamentally changing the way we design, manufacture, and build.
