Framework Will Be the Tallest All-wood CLT Building in North America at 12 Stories.
We are excited to join the Framework project as the timber structure delivery partner, working alongside project^, LEVER Architecture, KPFF, and Walsh Construction to build this 12 story cross laminated timber building.
We are providing design-assist, 3D modelling, fabrication, and installation services for the timber structure.
We also performed extensive structural and fire testing for the building components.
In what will be a world first, the structure uses a post-tensioned rocking wall Cross-laminated timber (CLT) core as the lateral stability seismic system. Extensive testing is being conducted to prove this system. CLT panels up to 40' long form the floor system, resting on Glulam beams and columns.
The project has currently been put on hold, but check back for updates.
In the mean time, head over to the East Grand Office project page to learn more about a large mass timber building we recently completed in Des Moines.
