Tobias Fast Speaks at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Global Conference 2021
November 9, 2021
On November 8, 2021, at 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm CST, Fast + Epp Associate Tobias Fast speaks about the unique mass timber design innovations of the 10-storey project on 2150 Keith Drive at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) global conference 2021, on the theme of “The Future City: Addressing Carbon, Climate and Societal Crises”.
In collaboration with DIALOG, Keith Drive was designed with mass timber in mind. Fast + Epp developed a perimeter timber braced frame system that creates a striking façade expression and eliminates the need for conventional cast-in place concrete cores. The perimeter timber braced frames are paired with four discrete internal cross laminated timber (CLT) shearwalls.
