Timelapse: The Construction of the World’s Tallest Timber Tower

Topping out two weeks ago, the structure of Brock Commons, currently the tallest timber structure in the world, is now complete. Measuring in at 18 stories and 174 feet (53 meters) tall, the building was completed nearly four months ahead of schedule, displaying one of the advantages of building tall buildings with wood.

Just 70 days after the prefabricated timber components were first delivered to the site, construction will now turn to the interior, with an expected completion date in early May 2017. In total, construction time will clock in at a speed 18 percent faster than a traditional project.

Check out the timelapse video to see the project come together.
