Are you interested in developing, designing, or building a complete mass timber building? Utilizing mass timber for both the building’s gravity and lateral systems?

Please join us for our next meetup where Katie Ritenour, Jack McCutcheon and Reid Zimmerman of KPFF will share their experience in designing complete mass timber buildings. You will learn prescriptive code paths for mass timber lateral systems. Discover lateral system options when projects follow an Alternate Means and Methods path.

Take a closer look at the Catalyst Building, Mississippi Mixed-Use Building, Lincoln City Police Station, and Framework projects. KPFF's engineers will share the code paths and unique detailing approaches used for the buildings' mass timber lateral force resisting systems.
KPFF will also discuss recent mass timber research and upcoming code developments. Come learn how to further utilize this material on your mass timber projects.

As always, we look forward to seeing you, and please share!
