July 24: How High Can We Build with Wood Framing and Mass Timber?  Lessons learned from NEESWood
Register for Workshop! 
Wednesday, July 24, 9am
(duration 7.50 Hours)

Ten years ago, the NEESWood Capstone Project was the largest building ever tested on a shake table at Japan’s E-Defense seismic laboratory.  This pioneering work in performance based seismic design helped pave the way for resilience based seismic design.
In this one-day seminar we’ll review work over the last decade that is changing today’s construction landscape and ushering in the next evolution of wood utilization: mass timber. There will also be a special lunchtime presentation by Dr. Ian Robertson on the NEES Tsunami project and how it is changing today's building code. Come hear from research leaders from both the U.S. and Japan and learn about the future of wood.
