This research project aims to assess the status of mass timber construction in the San Francisco Bay Area, based on the perspective of local building design and construction professionals. Local architects, engineers and construction management professionals were surveyed for their experiences with mass timber construction projects in the Bay Area, as well as for their opinions of mass timber construction in general. The survey finds that a vast majority of local building design and construction professionals have no experience using mass timber on construction projects, but that a majority of them have a somewhat favorable opinion of its use for many different building types, mostly up to mid-rise height. Just over one third of survey participants felt that their employer would be an early adopter in mass timber construction if code changes allowed for its use in taller structures.
