Tall Wood Buildings: Design, Construction and PerformanceTall Wood Buildings: Design, Construction and Performance

By Michael Green and Jim Taggart

Tall Wood buildings have been at the foreground of innovative building
practice in urban contexts for a number of years. From London to
Stockholm, from Vancouver to Melbourne timber buildings of up to 20
storeys have been built, are under construction or being considered.
This dynamic trend was enabled by developments in the material itself,
prefabrication and more flexibility in fire regulations. The low CO2
footprint of wood - often regionally sourced - is another strong
argument in its favour. This publication explains the typical
construction types such as panel systems, frame and hybrid systems. An
international selection of 13 case studies is documented in detail with
many specially prepared construction drawings, demonstrating the range
of the technology. Publisher: Birkhauser
