University of Idaho’s (U of I’s) Idaho Central Credit Union Arena in Moscow features a specially crafted dual-curve roof in a long-span format made from timber. The engineering team behind the project worked to develop, shape, and optimize the curved roof, ensuring its feasibility for fabrication and construction.
Mass timber structures are entering the discussion for many projects in North America, and increasingly for taller buildings. This is, in part, due to recent code changes allowing for combustible construction in taller structures. However, interest in the industry is driven by a larger trend—the need for fast action to mitigate climate change.
