Case Study: Building Australia’s First Timber High-Rise
Graeme Collins, Lend Lease

When the 10-story Forté was completed in 2012, it was the tallest timber apartment in the world and the first in Australia to be built from cross laminated timber (CLT). This case study presentation will focus on the challenges and benefits of using this revolutionary new material. For example, while meeting all requirements for safety and performance, CLT allowed developers to reduce construction time by 30 percent while producing less waste. CLT buildings also offer carbon benefits—because of the carbon stored in the wood itself, emissions avoided by not using steel or concrete, and the fact that CLT’s thermal properties and tight tolerances contribute to energy efficiency. With a cost comparable to concrete, developers at Lend Lease now plan to use CLT for 30 to 50 percent of their Australian apartment projects.

Graeme Collins is Project Manager for the Forté development in Victoria, Australia, which is the country’s first cross laminated timber building and the tallest apartment building of its kind in the world. He is an industry professional with many years of international property experience gained through involvement in various phases of the property development cycle.

Adding Method to the Madness: Validating Green Product Claims
Richard Bergman, PE, PhD

Although the green building movement has become a considerable force, questions remain about the validity of ‘green’ product claims. As a result, an increasing number of green building rating systems, codes and standards have incorporated a scientific method of evaluation known as life cycle assessment (LCA). LCA considers the environmental impacts of materials over their lifetimes, from extraction or harvest through manufacturing, transportation, installation, use, maintenance and disposal or recycling. It helps building designers make informed choices by allowing them to compare the impacts of their designs. Increasingly, it is also forming the basis of environmental product declarations (EPDs)—which many consider to be the next frontier of environmental disclosure and evaluation.

Richard Bergman, PE, PhD, is conducting research on the environmental impacts of wood products and bioenergy systems using life cycle analysis (LCA). He received his Bachelors in Chemical Engineering and his Master’s and PhD in Forestry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His recent dissertation focused on incorporating the impact on climate change from the timing of greenhouse gas emissions for building materials. Rick has participated in updating the National Green Building Standard and continues to participate on the ASTM E60 Sustainability Committee.

Structural Design of Post-frame Building Systems: A Conceptual Presentation
Dr. Harvey Manbeck, PE, National Frame Builders Association

This program begins with a brief description of post-frame building systems followed by an overview of key concepts for their structural design. Information is presented from a conceptual standpoint as opposed to an equation and computational standpoint. Two design methods are addressed: one for post-frame systems without diaphragm action, the other for post-frame systems with diaphragm action. The majority of the program is focused on the latter. The presentation will show how a simple yet powerful and readily available computer program, DAFI, determines the proportion of design lateral loads that are carried to ground by the individual post frames and the proportion carried to ground by the roof diaphragm and shear walls. The program then shows how the isolated post foundations are designed to resist lateral and uplift forces. Technical resources available to design professionals will also be discussed.

Dr. Harvey Manbeck, PE, is professor emeritus at Penn State University, where he taught wood structural engineering and building systems engineering for nearly 30 years. He has published over 340 technical articles, including 101 referred journal articles, and chaired the standards-writing committee that developed the first nationally recognized engineering practice on diaphragm design of post-frame buildings.

Timber Framing: A Time-honored Craft Approach for High Quality, Sustainable, Commercial Construction
Mack Magee, PE, FraserWood Industries
Eric Morley, Carolina Timberworks, LLC

Timber framing, an ancient tradition revived in North America in the 1970s, has been contributing to the sustainability of buildings since before sustainability was in vogue. Timber framing makes use of the only truly renewable structural building material—one that sequesters significant amounts of carbon and may contribute to a neutral or even negative carbon footprint. This presentation will cover why and how to integrate a timber-frame solution into your next commercial project, enabling you to reduce its environmental impacts while delivering a warm, expressive structure. Topics will include material choices, joinery decisions, finishes, embellishments, code compliance and getting started in design, as well as commercial project examples.

Before obtaining his BS and MS in Civil Engineering from Stanford University, Mack Magee worked as a journeyman carpenter in downtown Chicago high-rise construction. After graduating, he joined Owens Corning, where he held a number of positions in production, sourcing, and corporate engineering. This was followed by positions as Director of Operations for Riverbend Timber Framing and General Manager of Cascade Joinery. In 2006, Mack partnered with Ben Brungraber to establish Fire Tower Engineered Timber, a heavy timber specialty engineering firm. In addition to his role at Fire Tower, Mack is a partner in FraserWood Industries, a BC-based glulam and solid sawn timber manufacturer and fabricator.

Eric Morley earned his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he worked during the summers as a carpenter. His career in the wood business began at Masonite’s Import/Export division. Masonite’s sale to International Paper led to a chance to learn the domestic hardwood lumber business with International Paper’s acquisition of McEwen Lumber. An MBA from Appalachian State University in 1992 provided him the skills and guts to risk the leap into entrepreneurship. He built and managed Harmony Exchange’s manufacturing facility, and became COO before leaving 10 years ago to found Carolina Timberworks.
