With Jim DeStefano, P.E., AIA, F.SEI and Alan Organschi. For architecturally exposed structures, nothing beats the look and feel of timber. Timber is not just a structural system, it is also an architectural feature. It is often the most practical, cost effective, and sustainable choice when architectural drama is needed and a more mundane structure just will not do.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Timber form follows function
  • Introduction to mass timber
  • Traditional and contemporary timber framing
  • Glulam construction
  • Cross Laminated Timber (CLT)

Jim DeStefano, P.E., AIA, F.SEI is the president of DeStefano & Chamberlain Inc. located in Fairfield. He is a structural engineer and a licensed architect with 40 years of experience designing timber structures.

Alan Organschi is the design principal and partner at Gray Organschi Architecture located in New Haven. Alan is also a member of the faculty at Yale School of Architecture.
