Post and beam construction refers to a system where a buildings’ vertical support is built of beams and columns. Compared to conventional light timber framing, timber post and beam construction replaces the need for load bearing walls, allowing for large open spaces. This webinar will highlight the benefits and flexibility of mass timber post and beam construction. You will be introduced to what is possible, some key design drivers and where to find more detailed design information.
