Pushing the Limits of Mass Timber: EllisDon & DIALOG Hybrid Timber Floor System
Discover the collaboration between EllisDon and DIALOG as they unveil their composite concrete timber floor panel system. By combining cross-laminated timber (CLT) with post-tensioned concrete beams, this system sets a new standard in the industry. With an impressive 40-foot span and a low-profile design, it surpasses traditional CLT systems. The panel system not only reduces embodied carbon but also maximizes the use of sustainably harvested wood.
The session will delve into the system’s research and development process, composite technology intricacies, and the results achieved through testing and prototype production. David Pesta and Vincent Davenport will present the system’s offsite prefabrication capabilities, carbon sustainability, and the long-span exposed ceilings it can achieve.
