T3 Atlanta Office
Mass Timber at Scale.
T3 Atlanta is the second T3 office building ("timber, transit, technology") for the developer Hines. We are excited to again be working with the Hines team as the structural engineer and builder for the 6-storey timber and steel superstructure. Team members include HPA / DLR Group, MKA and New South Construction.
The first T3 in Minneapolis was completed in 2016 and helped spark the mass timber “revolution” that is being seen around North America, and demonstrated that, through efficient design and construction, timber can be used competitively in large scale commercial office spaces.
The 7-storey T3 Atlanta project, at 205,000 sqft timber area, will take over the previous T3 office building as the largest mass timber building in the US once built (albeit likely not for too long...). The gravity system is comprised of DLT (dowel-laminated timber) floor and roof panels over a Glulam post and beam substructure. The lateral system consists of perimeter and internal steel brace frames, which StructureCraft is installing in sequence with the timber structure.
