Tall Timber, A Revolution in the Building Industry

Monday, 11 December 2023 | The Nineteenth Century Club 178 Forest Avenue Oak Park, IL 60301 | Oak Park

Free and open to the public, join CTBUH at the Nineteenth Century Charitable Association for their enrichment series featuring CTBUH Director of Research and Thought Leadership, Daniel Safarik.

As cities seek to reduce carbon impact, one of humanity's oldest construction materials, is emerging as a promising solution to the sustainability challenges that modern construction presents.  With breakthroughs in engineering and manufacturing, "mass timber" has become a fresh way of using sustainably sourced wood to build structures with breathtaking designs while enriching life in urban settings.

A three-course lunch is served on Mondays at noon. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. for check-in and socializing. Reservation is required for the luncheon.
