• Compile the background information for validation of preliminary creep factors for mass timber-concrete composite made with products of Canadian species.
  • Develop an approach for conducting small-scale and/or full-scale testing of mass timber-concrete composite systems for floors.
  • Quantify the performance of mass timber diaphragms in tall hybrid buildings subjected to lateral (seismic and wind) loads.
  • Compare the economic and environmental metrics of a regular wood-frame building with a building designed for disassembly to support prefabrication and low-carbon construction.
