Solid Timber – Tall Wood: The New Marketplace

November 3, 2015 – Seaside, FL

Assistant Professor Jacob Gines recently spoke at the Resource Management Service (RMS) annual meeting on the topic of timber product resources, potential supply chains for the southeast region of the U.S., and the future of tall wood buildings in North America.  Gines also highlighted the work of his recent design studio at Mississippi State University that has been exploring the realities of solid timber – tall wood buildings. His students proposals are for a mid-rise (15-20 story) building in Manhattan, NY and incorporate innovative timber technologies such as Cross Laminated Timber (CLT).
