In February this year I moderated an informative panel discussion during the Holzbau Pacific Northwest conference in Vancouver, BC. Held just a month before the Mass Timber Conference in Portland, Oregon, the smaller Holzbau event was focused squarely on manufacturing-related topics, of interest to those companies currently producing mass timber, as well as industry watchers and potential future manufacturers. 
 

Next week will see over 700 people congregate in Portland for what promises to be the largest conference on mass timber in North America. TallWood Design Institute will be participating as a sponsor of this important event, and we invite delegates to come by Booth 308 and learn more about how we are contributing to the growth of the industry. Another way to hear about our projects and activities is through one of the many presentations by our own faculty associates, recent students, or companies and organizations with whom we've worked.

CORVALLIS, Ore. — The National Center for Advanced Wood Products Manufacturing and Design at Oregon State University has been renamed as the TallWood Design Insititute.

The institute brings together the OSU College of Forestry; OSU College of Engineering; and the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts. It's the nation's only research collaborative that focuses exclusively on the advancement of structural wood products, and will serve as a national research, education, teaching and outreach hub in the development of tall wood buildings.

On March 1st 2017 the TallWood Design Institute held a round table event at University of Oregon's White Stag building focusing on the potential opportunities for mass timber products to be used in affordable housing.
