Currently, the 100 percent of the buildings over four stories in Chile are built on reinforced concrete. This paper presents the first modern mid-high rise anti-seismic timber structure built in the country based on the light frame construction system. With 5-story high and a 6th-floor terrace, it satisfies the strict seismic regulation and becomes a referent for future timber constructions in our country. It was designed collaboratively by an interdisciplinary group of architects, engineers and members of the industry responsible for the construction. The result is an experimental tower made of prefabricated stackable modules which optimize its prefabrication, transport and subsequent assembly. It is expected to monitor its energy performance, seismic behavior and measures its construction cost-efficiency while market surveys of perception to potential end users and developers are conducted.
