We are pleased to announce the launch of the Tall Timber Program Room, organized by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat in conjunction with Think Wood. The program room will comprise a dedicated track of sessions/presentations at the CTBUH 2018 Polycentric Cities Conference, all focused on this increasingly important topic.

Interest in constructing tall buildings from engineered mass timber has reached unprecedented levels in the past few years, with proposals and live construction projects all over the world now underway. The tall building industry is entering new territory with this novel use of one of the world’s oldest and most sustainable building materials. Engineering standards and local building codes are not optimized to foster adoption of these new techniques, but this is changing rapidly. Now is the time to set the agenda, agree standards, and share emerging practices around this exciting new field.

A number of speaking opportunities are available for this program room. We invite you to submit an abstract that clearly describes how your topic relates to the tall timber theme. Don’t miss your chance to help chart the course of this construction revolution!
