If you’re in the AEC industry, you are well aware the current price of wood is high. Like petroleum or a perfectly ripe avocado, its value is high and its availability low; and right now, it’s all about timing (and for most of these, a proper supply chain).
SEATTLE, Wash. – September 16, 2021 -- DCI Engineers, a civil and structural engineering firm, is pleased to announce that Associate Ethan Martin will step into the new role of Director of Sustainability and Mass Timber. Based in the firm’s Portland office, Ethan will oversee strategy efforts for both Sustainability and Mass Timber efforts across all 13 regional offices.
For many people in the AEC industry, Ethan Martin is known as “the wood guy.” As the former Northwest Regional Director at WoodWorks, Ethan lives and breathes mass timber. He joined DCI Engineers in 2020, leveraging experience, professional relationships and—most importantly—passion to further advance the firm’s presence in the mass timber market.
DCI Engineers recently hosted a four-part Mass Timber Webinar Series alongside several industry partners -- topics included an Intro to Mass Timber, Mass Timber for Developers, Breaking Down Type IV-HT Heavy Timber and the new Tall Mass Timber Code.
The sessions were led by DCI Associate Ethan Martin and moderated by DCI Senior Business Development Coordinator Katelyn Suprenant.
DCI Engineers is in Week #3 of its Mass Timber Webinar Series, and this round features the project team of 1 De Haro, San Francisco’s first cross-laminated timber (CLT) structure. On Thursday, October 8, at 9am, representatives from DCI, Perkins & Will, SKS and Hathaway Dinwiddie will discuss the challenges and wins of constructing this milestone project for the City.
