The last few months have been an exciting time for construction on the Tall Timber Student Housing Project. Construction of the structural steel frame has been completed and work to install the mass timber assemblies is well underway.

Building with prefabricated mass timber assemblies require careful coordination with subcontractors and consultants to ensure they can be rapidly installed to specification.

Previous lectures have focused on specific systems in the building. This lecture by Ledcor Construction Limited, General Contractor for Tall Timber Student Housing, will look at the role the general contractor plays in ensuring all these elements are coordinated to deliver this complex and ambitious project.

Topics will include the differences between managing mass timber and conventional builds, the use of digital modelling to assist construction, and the challenges of site management.

Room 1072, NW4 (Health Sciences Centre)
