Tom Chung Keynote Speaker in Maine Wood Conference

Tom Chung, Principal, was the Keynote speaker at the Maine Wood + Sustainability Conference in Portland, ME on May 9th.  Tom presented a case study on the award-winning University of Massachusetts-Amherst John W. Olver Design Building and stressed why timber is so important right now for buildings and what Maine’s role is in that importance.

The conference aimed to explore the opportunities and challenges of creating a more sustainable Maine wood-based economy and discussed best practices on how to create a more sustainable built environment by using wood products.

AIA Maine, Passivhaus Maine, and Local Wood WORKS have partnered to bring architects, engineers, wood products manufacturers, builders and policy makers together to learn, discuss, and find ways to work together to keep Maine at the forefront of these new opportunities.
