Architects, engineers, developers, suppliers and carpenters gathered at the Local 27 Carpenter Union’s training facility in late November for an orientation breakfast focussed on mass timber.

Urban Toronto writes:

“The event was attended by leading experts in the field, including Mark Gaglione from EllisDon; Prominent builder Leith Moore from R-Hauz; Brock O’Donnell from Rothoblaas; and David Moses from Moses Engineering. The experts sat on a panel and answered questions about mass timber in the industry.”

“David Moses, Principal of Moses Engineering, spoke about the curriculum that his company created in collaboration with the Carpenter’s Union.”

“A few years ago they [the CDCO] sat down with us to help develop this curriculum. It has a classroom component to it, but it’s also really hands on. Students learn about all of the wood products in the classroom, as well as the different types of connection products, and they’re learning about handling the material safely.”

“Following the breakfast and expert panel, was a mass timber training facilities tour at 420 Rowntree Dairy Road, where these models could be seen being worked on in real-time.”
