The event "Mass Timber Part 1: Meeting Environmental and Social Objectives with Wood Buildings," organized by ULI Northwest and WoodWorks, will take place on May 21, 2024, from 3:30—6 pm at the Meyer Memorial Trust located at 2045 N Vancouver Ave, Portland, Oregon. This discussion and tour, led by Kate Carrigg of WoodWorks and Chandra Robinson of LEVER, will focus on the environmental and social benefits of using wood and mass timber. The presentation will cover sustainable development goals including healthy buildings, resilience, and environmental equity, while drawing on examples like the Meyer Memorial Trust Campus in Portland’s Albina Neighborhood.

This is the first of a two-part series on Mass Timber in partnership with ULI NW and WoodWorks. Part 2 will be a workshop hosted by the WoodWorks Innovation Network in the Fall, designed to offer valuable insights into mass timber project management and execution with a focus on identifying opportunities to streamline processes and optimize costs.
