This workshop covers the fundamentals of mass timber, the tools, and materials used for mass timber construction, and describes the various processes used to build mass timber structures. Mass Timber is engineered wood comprised of compressed layers of solid wood panels which provide exceptional strength and stability, like concrete and steel. Mass timber's lower weight gives it an advantage over steel and concrete assemblies. Light and strong prefabricated assemblies using mass timber products can help curb emissions due to the reduction of transport and can decrease a building's overall foundation costs.
