Venue Name: Hines T3 Building
323 North Washington Avenue
Association of Licensed Architects
The Hines T3 development is an innovative 224,000-square-foot, seven-story mass timber office building located in the fast growing North Loop neighborhood of downtown Minneapolis.
Real estate leader Hines has recognized that the wants and needs of contemporary, technology-rich workers are shifting the way we think about workplace design. The firm connected with DLR Group’s designers and the result is the T3 concept: timber, transit, and technology. T3’s use of wood columns, beams, and floor joists makes it unique, the first major multi-story U.S. office building to be built of wood in the last 100 years. The design relies on exposed engineered wood components that convey organic warmth and beauty within the workplace environment, while being sustainable, renewable, and structurally predictable.
Stephen Cavanaugh, AIA, LEED AP of DLR Group, will provide insights on the design, construction and materials for this award-winning building. DLR Group worked as architect of record in collaboration with Michael Green Architecture.
