The Maine Mass Timber Event Overview:

Many are predicting the coming of a Timber Age, where Northern forests and rural economies supply the growing demand for urban construction and housing.  In the Northeast, Maine and its forests sit atop one of the largest urban population centers on the planet. With over 90% of its land base covered in trees, Maine is the most heavily forested state in the nation, making it a prime candidate for economic revitalization through the sustainable production of mass timber. Hosted by the Maine Mass Timber Commercialization Center (MMTCC) in partnership with WoodWorks, this conference is part of an initiative to invigorate the region’s forest-based economy by bringing innovative mass timber manufacturing and projects to the State of Maine. A number of topics will be explored, including both supply-side (manufacturing, utilization of locally-sourced raw materials, workforce needs) and demand-side issues (design and construction of products and structures, code applications, fire resistance, and developer obstacles). By presenting a dynamic mix of speakers, including CLT companies that have announced plans to manufacture in Maine as well as architects and engineers, this event will b

ring together regional stakeholders to address questions that commonly arise when discussing this exciting new (to the U.S.) construction type.
