The International Association for Mass Timber Construction aims to promote and deliver value to its members and associated stakeholders through an all-encompassing approach to advocacy, thought-leadership, development for the architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing sectors, provide education, training/teaching and research in establishing a global mass timber construction sector across the five contents of the world.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are 5. This is the moment you all have been waiting for. It's 5. For the global sensation, the one, the only, the all-disputed, anyway podcast in the world, the Mass Timber Construction Podcast. And now here's what's right around your house. Good morning, good afternoon, all good evening. We're over here on The World Today. Welcome to the Mass Timber Construction Podcast. My name's Paul Crammy, your host. Thank you, bruce Buffer, for the wonderful introduction. again Going on strong now into the middle of the year, i'm hoping you're having a great year And we look forward to bringing you all the news from around the world in Mass Timber Construction Land. But before we do that, please hit the subscribe button so you never miss an episode of this podcast And we can bring it to you each week, to your ears, with special guest episodes and all the latest updates from around the world in Mass Timber Construction Land. Also, don't forget that we have our social media page. The Mass Timber Construction Journal LinkedIn feed is very strong at the moment Lots of community engagement going on. So if you'd like to learn more about the Mass Timber Construction World, please head to our social media feed And you can find all the latest going on there. Let's have a look at what's making news around the world this week. In Mass Timber Construction Land And the post that's getting the most attention at the moment is the Timber Development UK, td UK, who have launched their new publication called Timber Typologies, a comprehensive guide that aims to provide developers, investors and policymakers with the insights into the various low carbon timber construction options and methodologies Developed in collaboration with renowned Timber First architects Warthysilton Architects. The book serves as a primer for understanding how the diverse range of timber solutions all come together. Timber Typologies the first installment in a series of three books set to be released in the coming months, and offers valuable overview into timber benefits, timber components, timber systems encompassing lightweight timber frame and mass timber solutions. Dave Hopkins, the CEO of Timber Development UK, emphasised the critical role of timber in decarbonising the construction industry. He stressed the need for more specific discussions to be placed on various timber systems and approaches that are available and associated with the risks and benefits that can provide us with a progressive way to look at the way that architects, policymakers and the entire industry can be aligned for the understanding of timber construction for a better building future. You can head to our social media feed at Mass Timber Construction Journal on LinkedIn and find a link to the book there. There is well over 400 likes, so you won't be able to miss the post. It will provide you with all the information you need. In Oakland, the construction has reached the sixth story. for the mid-building podium block at 1510 Webster Street in downtown Oakland The timber structure is exposed right now, so the mass timber framework and around the concrete superstructure at the base where the transfer deck aligns, is making the 19-story plan unique. The building looks quite impressive. If you go to our Mass Timber Construction Journal, linked in feed, you'll be able to see the images of the superstructure going up and the facade system chasing it. It is impressive building in Oakland. Congratulations to everyone on the project And good friends. At Oregon State University. We'll receive one million from the federal government to study the effects of fire on specific construction material and seeing how its increased use might be affected. The US Department of Agriculture is providing the funds to the researchers to look at how mass timber responds to fire. Mass Timber is constructed using wood elements mainly and glues them together to make a composite material. However, eric Fisher has said that the University in Civil and Construction Engineering, who is going to help lead the study in mass timber. Timber is being increasingly used and what is less understood is how the fire will affect the building. We look forward to the outputs of that research at some point in the future, once the project has wound up, and we look forward to bringing you the news as it comes to hand from the team at OSU. And that's it, folks. That's what's been making news around the world this week in Mass Timber Construction Land. Don't forget, we have special guest episodes that you can download. The latest one is from Timber Lab and you can hear from Magnum himself. Yes, magnum PI, no, not really. Jared's middle name is Magnum. His mum named him that after Magnum PI. But you can hear Jared talking about the wonderful ways in which Timber Lab are turning manufacturing into an art that then provides us with a utility, which is typically a building in the US, and how Timber Lab is actually starting to take great waves in the way that that building approach is holding and gripping most of the US at the moment. Also, don't forget to check in on our Mass Timber Construction Journal LinkedIn feed and other social media outputs, including Twitter, and if you are a researcher and you have a research article that you'd love to get published in Mass Timber Construction Journal. We have our academic journal, which has an impact factor of 1.169 and climbing each year. Once again, my name is Paul Kramer, the host of the Mass Timber Construction podcast. Good morning, good afternoon or good evening. We're everywhere in the world today. Have a great week until we see you again, or speak to you again, or you'll listen to us again next week.
