Partner Ben Dalton and Associate Jeffrey Troutman will be discussing “The 3-Legged Stool of Decarbonization Will be Built out of Mass Timber” as part of the 2023 San Diego Green Building Conference and Expo.

The ‘Sustainable 3-Legged Stool’ that balances economy, community, and the environment has been a goal out of reach for most projects that infill our cities. However, the gap in our ability to meet this often-difficult hurdle has closed dramatically with the code adoption of Tall Mass Timber. These structural systems have roughly 50% less embodied-carbon and with proper foresting approaches traps even more carbon. Learn how to effectively implement this system by recognizing and applying special considerations early in the process.

Other speakers include Justin Wei, Associate Principal at DCI Engineering
