View of "connector" space in UW Tacoma's Milgard Hall, showing mass timber structural elements
A view of the ground floor "connector" space in Milgard Hall shows the warm wood tones of the mass timber columns, beams and panels. A whole-building life-cycle cost assessment found that, when compared to steel and concrete structural systems, Milgard Hall's hybrid mass-timber structural system reduced embodied carbon in the building by 70%.
