In this weeks episode, Steeltech Industries release a rare photo  the construction of Asia largest timber building, where Steeltech Industries is constructing. With the use of Mass Engineered Timber (MET), we have substantially reduced the amount of concrete required, hence avoiding more than 2,600 tonnes of CO2 emission in the concrete production process. Mass Timber Construction Journal founder/editor-in-chief, podcast host and global mass timber industry expert, Paul Kremer, has been appointed to the steering committee for an innovative project with the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) based in Chicago. The project will see the development of a research program examining the benefits of using mass timber (CLT) in concert with structural steel for the realisation of a hybrid solution for high-rise buildings. The internationally active office White Arkitekter is dedicated to the renewable material wood and ecologically and socially sustainable architecture. In 2016, they designed a 20- storey building in Skellefteå in Sweden that will be one of the world’s tallest timber high- rise structures. Sara Kulturhus – a new cultural centre right in the core of the city combining theatre, museum, art gallery, public library, conference centre and hotel – opens this year. The building, designed to reduce embodied as well as operational carbon emissions, is mainly made of wood grown in the regional boreal forests. Solar panels and efficient energy systems further contribute to minimising the project's climate footprint.  Don't forget the www.iamtc.org is looking for foundation members for the association, get your applications in!
