Mass Timber Awareness & Utilization

Building a Mass Timber Movement

Mass timber construction has the potential to revolutionize the places that we live, work and play. GFF is focused on driving awareness of mass timber by showcasing the natural beauty, versatility and sustainability of wood in the built environment. 

Earlier this year, GFF partnered with Georgia Tech’s Digital Fabrication Lab to host a Mass Timber Design Studio. The Studio brought together students in Architecture, Civil Engineering and Construction Management. The students formed teams to develop an architectural design, cost estimate and small-scale model for a mass timber pavilion that can be moved to different high-profile areas across the state. The display will further the public awareness of the benefits working forests and mass timber provide.
