Our January presentation will examine the Construction of Mass Timber Buildings.

Our esteemed presenter is Jeff Spiritos of Spiritos Properties, LLC.  Jeff Spiritos is the principal of Spiritos Properties, LLC, a commercial and residential developer that builds mass timber projects in New York and the Northeast.  Spiritos worked for 25 years with Hines before starting his firm in 2004 and for the past seven years has turned to build only with mass timber structural systems.  Current projects include Acme Timber Lofts, an 18-unit rental apartment vertical extension project and 340+ Dixwell, a 69-unit affordable housing project, both underway in construction in New Haven, CT, and 79 King Street, a 70-unit 55+ rental apartment project in Northampton, MA, currently in design.  Both the New Haven projects were fortunate to have been selected for US Forest Service Wood Innovation Grants.  Spiritos has a BSCE from Duke University and an MBA from the University of Michigan and is currently the Chair of the CTBUH Tall Timber and Steel-Timber Hybrid Committees.
