In this special guest episode, I speak with New York City Developer Jeff Spiritos, of Spiritos Properties. Spiritos Properties is committed to building tall wood buildings, mass timber buildings and promoting the adoption of mass timber buildings in the design, construction and real estate industry. Our goal is to share what we have learned since our team was selected as one of the two winners of the US Tall Wood Building Competition in 2015. The project, 475 West 18th Street, in New York City, gave us the opportunity to meet with the leading industry participants from Europe and North America, to learn mass timber building systems and technology, research and engineering. We keep current on innovation through these relationships and deep involvement throughout much of the World.
Jeff and I speak about the global push into the adoption of mass timber, how passivhaus in concert with mass timber can support lower operational carbon, and the compelling argument that a developer makes about the costs associated with adopting a timber or timber-hybrid approach to construction. We have a few laughs, and indeed talk about the amazing work the https://www.ctbuh.org/ is doing to support mass timber development. Enjoy this amazing episode, I am very humbled to have Jeff on the podcast.
