Join leading architects, engineers, reseachers, builders, fabricators, real estate professionals and technologists for a weekend of innovation focused on mass timber, digitalization of construction, automation, robotics and software.
The Pacific Northwest is the fastest emerging American "cluster" of mass timber companies and home to the country's most productive forests. Interest in mass timber is growing quickly as are the "local" and thriving technology, real estate and construction industries - all while the U.S. West Coast housing shortage continues to grow. Join us for a weekend of developing solutions using technology and timber.
This event is created to give those designing, building, fabricating and building the future of the mass timber industry a unique opportunity to learn from and collaborate with both partners and cutting-edge technologies and the technologists creating the tools and future of the $12 trillion construction industry.
The first "Mass Timber Hackathon" is being organized by the team that created a global construction innovation movement through the AEC Hackathon (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) events (41 AEC Hackathons in 30 cities in 10 countries thus far).This Hackathon will be focused on mass timber and associated digitalization.
What happens at a Hackathon? Watch the explanatory video below from a past Hackathon similar to the upcoming Mass Timber Hackathon.
Sponsors: Please contact us to support the mass timber industry and innovation.
We thank our current sponsors, the US Forest Service and the Tallwood Design Institute for making this event possible.
Volunteers: Please contact us to volunteer at the hackathon.
This event will be followed by the Sixth Industrialized Construction Forum at Stanford on January 29th - https://www.indconstructionforum.com/ We are promoting both events and look forward to mass timber innovators joining us in Portland and at Stanford and at future mass timber hackathons in Europe and the U.S.
