The goal of this project was to research and evaluate the usage of mass timber in structures. An 8-story residential building was designed and analyzed by remodeling a 5-story residential/commercial building. To gain more insight on the challenges of using mass timber in buildings, background research and several interviews were conducted by reaching out to engineers, architects, contractors, and manufacturers that have experience designing and constructing buildings using mass timber. The results of the structural analysis and interview data were used to create a decision framework to help evaluate the usage of mass timber instead of steel or concrete in structures.
