JAMA Principal Matt Timmers was a speaker at Advancing
Mass Timber Construction 2020, a virtual conference focused on optimization, design and delivery of mass timber structures. Matt spoke on September 29th of the 20-day conference and was joined by architect Sindhu Mahadevan of Perkins + Will.
His topic, “Setting up a Collaborative Design-Assist Process With All Project Partners to Optimize Project Delivery” focused on the following:
- Establishing a collaborative culture and common goal from day one to streamline design development.
- Understanding the role of the mass timber manufacturer in design and how to effectively integrate them with the wider project team to cover every aspect of design and engineering.
- Highlighting the decisions that must be made earlier in design development to positively impact project cost and schedule.
