About the Event
First and foremost, the large wood panels that constitute CLT buildings are remarkably fire-resistant. Thick pieces of timber, such as a 12-inch-diameter log, are extremely difficult to ignite, and once lit, tend to self-extinguish. During an intense fire, the outer layer will begin to char, but the interior maintains its structural integrity for several hours.
CLT is also more sustainable than traditional materials like concrete and steel. Wood is 100% renewable, has superior insulation properties, and stores carbon dioxide. Like all plants, trees are “carbon sinks,” meaning they store more carbon than they release, even after being manufactured into lumber. Conversely, steel and concrete generate carbon during their production due to the burning of fossil fuels. Additionally, CLT reduces excess material waste that comes from cutting materials onsite, because each panel is prefabricated to millimeter precision before leaving the factory.
Finally, because CLT buildings have prefabricated panels, they can be constructed faster which reduces labor costs and safety risks. Similar to a set of Legos or Lincoln Logs, the wooden panels are quickly pieced together like a 3D puzzle, each piece fitting perfectly with those around it. For example, the CLT portion of 111 Ann Street, equating to five floors and roughly 146,000 SF, will take a stunningly short 12 weeks to install.
Please make sure you wear all proper PPE: hard-soled shoes - no sneakers or heeled boots, hard hat, safety vest and safety glasses. Also, no cropped pants.
Every attendee MUST have all of this to go on the tour. Otherwise, you will not be admitted on the tour - for our safety and yours.
