2022 Site Tour

Exclusive Site Tour                

In addition to the workshop day on September 12, this year, Advancing Mass Timber Construction will be offering a limited number of places for you and your team to visit a mass timber building and get up close with the finished product. Hear how the full project team collaborated to bring the client’s vision to reality, overcame procurement hurdles and project constraints, and successfully delivered a state funded urban infill type III-B office building.

Places are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. The visit will cost an addition of $200 per person.

Exclusive Site Visit: DCAMM Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA)

1pm, September 12

This three-story building houses modern, flexible workspaces for the DUA’s contact center, hearings rooms and administrative staff on the top two floors, and a downtown outpost for Massasoit Community College, focused on workforce training, on the ground level.

The building is designed with a cross laminated timber (CLT) and glulam beam and column structural system.

You’ll have the opportunity to visit the finished building, get up close to the reality of the mass timber aesthetic, while understanding the true challenges associated with building an entirely state funded mass timber structure. It’s certainly not one to miss!
