Nashville is getting its first large-scale mass timber structure in the form of two office buildings, up to 5 storeys tall, as part of a larger mixed use development.A feature of the building is the gable roofs, which will create a beautiful vaulted space that will also highlight the warmth of wood from the exterior. The floor and roof decks use structural, prefabricated DLT panels supported by a glulam post-and-beam frame. The mass timber superstructure is anchored back to centrally located concrete cores which transfer lateral loads down to the foundations. With this innovative office building, the project team has brought its knowledge and experience to the realization of a beautiful and efficient mass timber structure.
