Connections are a complex business in the realm of mass timber construction, not only because they play a cardinal role in the global behavior of the structure, but because their design and procurement so affects price, constructability, and a variety of other performance parameters like fire and moisture/durability.

Please join us alongside an exceptional panel consisting of:

Sebastian Popp (KLH),
Megan Stringer (Holmes Structures),
Mikko Salminen (Holmes Structures)
Todd Lubsen (Rothoblaas),
Chris Evans (Swinerton)
Jean-Philippe Letarte (Myticon Timber Connectors)

to discuss connectors and connections inside and out. What are common connectors and connection systems for mass timber structures? What custom/performance solutions exist? Where are connectors sourced and what do they cost? What about fire and seismic considerations? Inspections?

We look forward to seeing you all and discussing!

As always there will light refreshments and a cash bar.
