MTA Partner Carol Phillips will be speaking alongside Nerys Rau, Senior Project Manager (Waterfront Development) for George Brown College, and Ted Watson, Partner at MJMA Architecture & Design, at the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) Annual Conference on Monday July 31st at 9:50AM in Cleveland, Ohio.
Their presentation entitled “Mass Timber – The Future of Carbon Neutral Campuses” will focus on how mass timber can support a more sustainable and healthy campus and discuss its significant benefits, challenges, mitigations, and integrated delivery. These lessons will be expressed through two leading-edge project examples – Limberlost Place, a net-zero carbon emissions, mass timber JV between MTA and Acton Ostry Architects Inc. currently under construction at George Brown College, and the Academic Tower at the University of Toronto by MJMA, an 84m mass timber structure on track to be the tallest academic timber tower in North America.
Education embodies the future, perpetuating progress and our bettered existence. As such, institutions have a duty to lead the way in widespread adoption of carbon-sequestering mass timber while continuing to deliver an enriched student experience. Register to attend by clicking here.
