Performance, sustainability and aesthetic appeal are a few of the benefits offered by mass timber structural systems and the key drivers expanding opportunities for wood in the industrial building sector. How can wood contribute to cost effectiveness and create value for these types of buildings? What are the performance attributes of mass timber that can be beneficial when compared to conventional structural systems for industrial facilities? How can wood contribute to growing tenant and investor demand for sustainability and wellness?
In this session, we’ll answer these questions and more using case study examples including the Southfield Park 35 Warehouse in Dallas, Texas, developed by Affinius Capital (formerly USAA Real Estate). We’ll conclude with a discussion of the continued growth potential for mass timber in industrial building types, including flex buildings, manufacturing buildings, storage buildings, data centers and bulk distribution warehouses.
