Benton Johnson to Speak at CTBUH’s 2022 Steel-Timber Hybrid Buildings Conference


Principal Benton Johnson will be speaking at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH)’s 2022 Steel-Timber Hybrid Buildings Conference on Monday, May 23 in the “Two Public Buildings, California: Using Steel and Timber to Achieve Weight Savings” session.

The lightweight benefits of steel timber-hybrids are explored in this presentation through two projects: Billie Jean King Library in Long Beach, which reuses existing foundations on-site to support a new library; and COB 3 in San Mateo, which uses a steel BRB core with timber framing to minimize seismic loads.
