Mass timber is rapidly becoming the new material of choice due to its versatility and reduced environmental impact. Today’s engineered timber technologies offer new opportunities for increased overall economy and improved performance. The successful application of mass timber requires an understanding and consideration of topics broader than efficient and economic structural design alone. Resiliency in fire, good acoustic and vibration performance and ease of integration of building services must be carefully considered from the earliest stages of a project to ensure the unique requirements of the timber design are met. Arup’s multidisciplinary approach helps to deliver successful building designs that maximize the unique qualities of mass timber. Arup is at the forefront in the design of high performance timber. Our experience and understanding of the industry as a whole guides clients through the sometimes complex choices of system design and allows architects greater opportunities to challenge and create outstanding projects.
