Tall Wood Construction Discussion

This new technology allows wood to replace concrete & steel. It will eventually be cheaper than concrete & steel, faster to construct, and unlike concrete & steel, more sustainable. This will have a profound impact on the ways our cities are designed – but American companies currently must import the design talent, construction labor, and materials. How can we grow a local talent base? How do we get these projects built? The race is on, and the District sees itself leading the way. Listen in while experts discuss the emerging trend to use a different kind of technology for building construction.
