Building Tall with Mass Timber A webinar on May 27, 2021 from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. Webinar links will be sent one week before the event.
Manufactured mass timber allows buildings to be built faster, more sustainably with a much smaller carbon footprint than steel and concrete, and with a natural look that is healthier for space users. In Charlottesville, Virginia, the tallest mass timber building in the state rises with the eight-story 187,000 sq. ft. Apex Clean Energy Headquarters building. In Washington D.C., a two-story 105,000 sq. ft. vertical expansion of 80 M Street, a Class-A office property, is the Distric's first mass timber commercial office project.
Join the Institute for Sustainable Earth and the Center for Real Estate Entrepreneurship of George Mason University for a discussion with architectural firms William McDonough + Partners and Hickok Cole on these two pioneering real estate projects. Our featured speakers are:
