In this episode, the entire team at the Mass Timber Construction Journal, we would like to say thank you to all the people who have supported us in achieving this amazing milestone - 14k followers. Metsä Wood and its partners have designed a hybrid sandwich wall element which will renew offsite construction. The innovation combines concrete with Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber). Rules restricting the use of wood in UK buildings are hampering the switch to low-carbon building methods, according to timber architecture expert Andrew Waugh. Nonprofit Matt’s Place Foundation and a group of area businesses are looking to ease that financial burden by building an eco-friendly, state-of-the-art, interactive “smart home” designed specifically for ALS patients and their families to live in while coping with the disease. Redcar Properties, the developer behind the new project at 843 N. Spring Street, is building a five-story structure 120,000 square feet of offices for rent above approximately 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and subterranean parking for 141 vehicles. The New York City Council has approved the use of mass timber for the construction of buildings of up to 85 feet tall in the city. Lendlease has now completed the switch to 100 per cent renewable electricity supply across all of its projects, assets and offices in Europe.
