Technical Tour: Co|Lab (Hitt) - An Innovative Materials NetZero Lab

EST Friday, November 17, 2023

Roundtrip transportation provided from the Hyatt Regency Hotel to the walking tour in Washington, D.C.

Registration required.

Attendees will have an opportunity to see the first cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in Virginia. The Co|Lab is a safe space to test materials, approaches and technologies. Mass timber products such as CLT can be as strong as concrete or steel, but they’re 40% to 60% lighter — and their carbon footprints can be 60% to 75% smaller.

HITT partnered with McDonough + Partners to build this state-of-the-art facility that really went above and beyond market standards. Co|Lab is LEED v4 Platinum certified, LBC Petal certified, and designed to be net-zero energy.
