An Exposed and Expressive Signature Timber Structure

StructureCraft helped Turner Construction and Perkins & Will win this design-build project, and as Engineer of Record, has been working through design phases, including Building Permit drawings.

This will be StructureCraft’s second project in Washington DC, following the Arena Stage project.


Responsibilities include:

  • Full engineering and construction for the superstructure
  • Including the folded plate DLT (dowel-laminated timber) roof supported by Glulam / Steel substructure
  • As engineer of record, we are also responsible for the design of the concrete foundations

We will be installing the structure in Spring 2020.
