Wood WORKS! BC – Steel Castings for Timber Construction

Timber is a naturally sourced material that provides warmth to almost any design, and castings are manufactured from recycled material that offers free form geometric capabilities, strength and ductility.  Used together, steel castings and timber hybrid-construction offer designers the ability to leverage the best attributes of both materials for architectural and structural design, while opening up a world connection solutions. In this webinar, explore projects leveraging both standardized “off-the-shelf” and custom-designed castings for timber structures, such as, Vancouver International Airport: Pier D Expansion, the John W. Olver Design Building at UMASS Amherst, and Roy Bickell Public School in Grand Prairie, and learn how designers successfully married timber and steel castings. We’ll also explore various fastening methods, study lessons learned when using stainless steel castings, and review different coating systems for cast steel connections.
