Just as in commercial architecture, engineered timber is transforming how residential developments are being designed and built, with a growing emphasis on carbon sequestration and environmental sustainability on top of ongoing residential trends that focus on tenant amenities and social interaction. The varying requirements of residential design offer different challenges to structural timber than commercial architecture, showcasing the versatility of the material. With residences and communal facilities such as restaurants, a library, and a multi-function center, the under-construction Aveo Norwest provides an excellent case study of mass timber in medium density residential developments, and as the venue for this program it will serve as the backdrop for a discussion on the challenges and benefits of timber as a structural material from the perspective of contractors, developers, and architects.
