WoodWorks Wood Products Council Presents:  University of Arkansas Mass Timber Residence Halls: Design and Construction Insights Webinar
Wed, Jan 9, 2019 12:00 PM CST

At over 202,000 square feet, Stadium Drive at the University of Arkansas is the nation’s first large-scale mass timber residence hall project. Framed with cross-laminated timber (CLT) floor and roof panels and glued-laminated timber (glulam) columns and beams, the project creates a vibrant new destination with retail dining, classrooms, maker-spaces, performance spaces, communal spaces, administrative offices, and faculty housing, along with a mix of semi-suites and pods totaling 708 beds. Presented by the project manager, this webinar will provide insights gained from the design and construction of this project, including building official review and code approval, inter-disciplinary coordination, shop drawings, construction sequencing and field modifications. This session will equip attendees with the knowledge required to approach the design and construction administration phase of innovative CLT buildings.
