Case Study of the Largest CLT Project (by Square Footage) Built in the U.S.

— Christopher Evans, Operations Manager, Swinerton Builders

The presentation will be an in-depth case study of a 156,000 square foot mass timber project in Hillsboro, Oregon USA.
Constructed by Swinerton Builders, with its own forces, this case study focuses on both the self-perform aspect of erecting mass timber and the procurement strategy of delivering a mass timber project to fruition. The presentation will walk the audience through preconstruction activities including design optimization techniques, implementation of BIM to deliver a prefabricated building, and phasing techniques. Additionally, site logistics, quality management, field production, and erection details will be discussed. The presentation should be highly engaging as there is not much data available on the procurement of mass timber projects of this size.
