Mass Timber+ co-locates with Greenbuild
Greenbuild 2024 will take place in Philadelphia, PA, alongside Mass Timber+ (formerly known as the Industrialized Wood Based Construction Conference), produced by Forest Economic Advisors.
Attendees got an inside look at new ideas, new education, and got direct access to the latest cutting-edge products to move the green building industry forward.
New City, New Collaboration
The Greenbuild and Mass Timber+ (formerly IWBC) events will take place at the same time in the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. Attendees will have access to both expo floors ensuring new, expanded access to the latest and most cutting-edge products and ideas.
About the Mass Timber+ Conference
The Mass Timber+ Conference, formerly called the IWBC Conference, was founded in 2018 and based in Boston, is the world’s only international wood-based industrialized construction conference. It has become well known, not only for the quality of its content, but also as a venue that attracts leading individuals and innovators in the rapidly expanding industrialized construction community.
All forms of offsite manufacturing, including mass timber panelized and modular builders – as well as connections, machinery and software developers meet to explore opportunities, exchange ideas and introduce new technologies to move this industry forward.

Featured Topics & Industries at Mass Timber+
Mass Timber+ is where wood-based offsite construction’s suppliers, buyers and specifiers meet to explore opportunities, exchange ideas and introduce technologies to move this industry forward. Opportunities and advancements in integrated, offsite, wood-based manufacturing explained by the experts.
Enables leading edge automation, greater precision and higher quality, accelerated project schedules, more efficient assembly on site with less disruption and a significant reduction in the need for skilled labor.
Mass Timber is leading a rebirth of modern construction. Demand is growing exponentially driven by an ever-increasing demand for low-carbon buildings and enabled by advances in manufacturing technology and the productization of buildings.
Offsite manufacturing allows laborers to work year-round in a safe, controlled environment. The need for skilled labor is greatly reduced because of in-plant automation and the ease of assembly of fewer, larger finished elements onsite.
DfMA — Design for Manufacture and Assembly
DfMA and digitalization are enabling architects, engineers and contractors to create buildings that go up faster, more affordably, with higher quality and value and a smaller carbon footprint.
Reducing Embodied Carbon
When sustainably managed and harvested, wood produces far lower CO2emissions than concrete or steel. If the industry wants to make an impact, mass timber and light framing are a clear solution in North America. One cubic meter of wood will store one ton of carbon dioxide.
Delivery Options: Mass Timber, Light Frame, Panelized Modular
All offsite, all vertically integrated, all are leaner, greener, faster and cost effective. IWBC is the place to see and learn about leading offsite wood construction.
