This April Pro Tour will showcase a 7-story mass timber CLT building, currently under construction. Attendees will learn about both the technical details of the project and about the highly collaborative approach that made this ambitious work possible.

The project is poised to become the first of its kind in the Boston area, and attendees will tour the residences at the peak of construction, granting them a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at this urban midrise. This building is being built for PHIUS certification and will provide the neighborhood with 34 units of market-rate housing. The tour will be co-hosted by Passive to Positive and Haycon Building LLC, who will be joined by additional speakers from other contributing companies.

During the tour, the interdisciplinary speaker team will discuss the project goals, design process, construction and materials, and mechanical systems. The project team is eager to share their lessons learned, including the process of coordinating MEP and structural systems in a mass timber structure.

Note: Attendees of this Pro Tour are required to be vaccinated against COVID. We will also require masks when inside except when eating or drinking.
