Introduction to Nail-Laminated Timber in NY and MA
March 19, 2019
Join our Senior Technical Specialist, Carla Dickof, and colleagues Nathan Bergen from Seagate Structures, Colin Shane from RDH Building Science, and Alex Minard from Perkins + Will, for their CEC Woodworks workshop on Nailed it! Introducing the Design Guide for Nail-Laminated Timber.
Growing interest in mass timber has led to increased use not only of cross-laminated timber, but nail-laminated timber (NLT or nail-lam)—a lesser known but more common material option. Using lessons learned from real projects, this workshop will provide practical strategies and guidance for the safe, predictable, and economical use of NLT. Discussion will include architectural and structural considerations, envelope and fabrication details, and key information from the Nail Laminated Timber Design and Construction Guide, which was authored by the speakers.
Dates & Location of workshop:
March 28, 2019 in Newton, MA
March 29, 2019 in New York, NY
