DBR | Design Build Research


Founded by Architect Michael Green and Structural Engineer Eric Karsh, Design Build Research is a non-profit organization that will soon offer free, open online education courses to professionals and students in the design, engineering, and construction of mass timber buildings. In preparation for course development and delivery of the Timber Online Education program, an independent research firm, R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd., was hired to conduct a short 15-minute survey. In order to better understand the needs and interests of industry professionals and students related to the design and construction of mass timber buildings, your feedback is vital.
