With over 3.5 million square feet of mass timber projects in our portfolio, Pickard Chilton has invested significant time and effort to best understand the unique opportunities mass timber presents while stretching the boundaries of its structural, massing and enclosure design. While each design addresses the challenges specific to the individual project, in return, it allows for the exploration of the near-limitless possibilities of mass timber. Highlighted below are four recent designs where common mass timber design was innovatively challenged to craft experiences tailored to the needs of each client and community.
As Pickard Chilton celebrates the re-opening of our architectural design studio, we recognize this moment as a notable inflection point for the holistic re-envisioning of the modern workplace. We pride ourselves on the physical and technical agility of our workspace and consider our studio a testbed - constantly adapting, moving and changing to suit new ways of collaboration and harnessing emerging technology.
“When we started Pickard Chilton, the word ‘sustainability’ was not in the professional lexicon.” Principal Jon Pickard recently shared with the panel discussion AIA Connecticut Live Action Climate: 2030 Challenge on April 20, 2021.
