Written on Nov 20, 2018

At Entuitive, collaboration is at the heart of our mission to offer clients elegant and creative engineering solutions for their building needs. This means collaborating with all stakeholders every step of the way during a project, as well as leading our industry colleagues in pushing building construction forward.

On October 30, Entuitive took part in the Perkins + Will Mass Timber Influencers & Mass Timber Institute Launch event in Toronto to lead a discussion on special considerations in timber construction, including fire safety, structural design, acoustics, and vibration, all with an emphasis on performance-based approaches. Following the presentation by members of the Entuitive Structural Wood team, Entuitive moderated two roundtable discussions on the approvals process and delivery models.

The presentations and roundtables yielded much positive discussion and many questions regarding timber construction.

“It’s this type of collaboration and knowledge-sharing with our industry peers that has the potential to deliver high-performance, creative solutions for our clients and the communities we serve,” highlights Sean Smith, Principal at Entuitive.

Timber is growing as a building material option in the public eye and offers many advantages. It is cost-effective, sustainable, and allows for faster construction times.

We look forward to our continued relationship with P+W and the Mass Timber Institute when it comes to pushing timber construction forward.
