A DAY OF LEARNING AND STRATEGIZING:
Forterra, along with the Construction Center of Excellence and the Center of Excellence for Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing, are convening a 2017 Cross Laminated Timber Event at University of Washington Tacoma on November 20th. Join in a full day of learning, celebrating successes and solidifying next steps toward advancing a sustainable cross laminated timber (CLT) and mass timber market in Washington.
Since hosting an initial CLT summit in 2015, Forterra has convened a statewide coalition to address the key barriers and opportunities to establishing a CLT market; secured state funding for CLT modular classrooms, technical assistance and research; and positioned Washington as a potential leader in building for a sustainable future.
Leaders and experts on key issue areas will provide concurrent presentations and opportunities for audience questions. Key topics addressed will include: CLT 101, building codes, production & supply, mass timber design & construction, forest health & restoration, workforce development & education.
Together, we will review existing strategies and activities. Attendees will identify and agree on next steps to leverage progress and opportunities to bring a vibrant and sustainable CLT/mass timber market to Washington State.
