Whats Mass Timber Sweet Spot

What is Mass Timber’s SWEET SPOT?

Is there a building size, height, number of stories, or occupancy in which mass timber works the best? In this video, I take a look at optimizing mass timber for a variety of projects, but rather than looking at this from a size and scale perspective, the focus is on structural material replacements for other systems in which mass timber works well – particularly post and beam framing. In this regard, mass timber’s sweet spot can vary between something like an office building and a multi-family building.
