About this Course:
With heavy timber structures on the rise across the world, the limits of Cross Laminated Timber in North America are continually being pushed and new applications found. Join us as we dig into the Candlewood Suites Hotel at Redstone Arsenal, the first CLT hotel in the United States, to learn how we did it and how you can utilize the material’s strength, speed of construction, minimal labor efforts and sustainable qualities on your next project.
- Understand CLT and its structural characteristics including strength and shrinkage properties.
- Explore reasons for selecting CLT as a building material such as schedule, site and labor constraints, as well as performance.
- Understand the Candlewood Suites at Redstone Arsenal structural design including unique parameters such as design for Anti-Terrorism Blast Protection and Progressive Collapse requirements.
- Discuss lessons learned during the design and construction processes and considerations for current and future projects.
Learning Units will be provided: Yes (LU)
About the Speaker:
Doug Steimle, PE, Principal at Schaefer, was challenged by the firm’s vision to “Lead the Field” in wood construction, becoming a recognized thought leader in Mass Timber Construction. In partnership with Nordic Structures and other innovative firms, Doug designed the first CLT (Cross-Laminated Timber) hotel in the United States for the Candlewood Suites at Redstone Arsenal. With over 30 Mass Timber projects now complete, he looks forward to breaking more Mass Timber barriers with multiple other projects currently in various stages of design.
