On May 11, Tim Rowbottom and Lisa Morrison joined the USGBC Missouri Gateway Chapter’s Annual Green Building Showcase to talk about sustainable building practices for the second phase of City Foundry STL. The virtual event was held from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. and included presentations about four projects in the Missouri Gateway region.
Rowbottom and Morrison’s presentation reviewed the principles of mass timber design and concepts of WELL Building Standard (WELL) v2. The session also covered the financial, societal and environmental benefits of mass timber and WELL design while understanding the connection to post-pandemic design.
City Foundry STL Phase 2 will include a five-story, mixed-use building offering multifamily housing and additional office and retail space. The 86,000-square-foot development will be the first modern mass timber building erected in St Louis and will seek WELL certification.
