CAL POLY SYMPOSIUM - BESS 2010
Mark Mack participated in the recent technical symposium at Cal Poly Pomona called 'BESS 2010: High Performance Building Enclosures, Practical Sustainability'. His presentation focused on KLH cross laminated timber panels from Austria. These modular panels have been used in Europe for wood framed buildings up to 8 stories. MACK Architect(s) have used these high tech buildiing blocks for two projects in Austria: the 4 story Judenburg West Housing Project and the 3 story Zooom office building in Fuschl. Using these modular panels accelerated the construction process and contributed to the advancement of sustainable timber construction.
