Summary Report: Survey of International Tall Wood Buildings

Over the past several years, a number of tall wood projects have been completed around the world, demonstrating successful applications of mass timber technologies. A survey of ten tall wood building projects in several countries was undertaken to present some common lessons learned from the experiences of four key stakeholder groups involved in the projects.

The survey was focused on the experiences of each project’s Developer/Owner, Design Team, Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), and Construction Team. It also examined the topics of project insurance, project financing and building operations and performance.
