Show Notes

Is it possible to transition from traditional forms of construction to mass timber? In this episode with Rens Hayes from H + O Structural Engineering we found out how its done. Rens talks about his amazing project in downtown Boston. With a consortium behind the project consisting of Haycon, Monte French Design Studio, and Nordic Structures it was always going  to be a success. 

A few key details:
- Glulam beams and columns support 5ply CLT panels
- 7 stories under 70 ft with 8'-8" ceilings.
- Double-beam design permits allows columns to be pulled in from the façade with seamless cantilever sections.
- 7-stories, no podium!
