For Engineers

Why Mass

Design is simpler with mass timber.

Why are our mass timber products a hit with engineers? Because it’s a material that works with you, not against you. Strong. Light. Insulative. Fire resistant. Wind and seismic resistant.

Build for the future. Build with mass timber.


Mass timber allows for excellent flexibility through the entire design process, especially for areas where wind and seismic considerations need to be met.


Mass timber is lighter than alternative materials, allowing for smaller concrete foundations and fewer bracing materials.


Our products can be manufactured to your specifications, in most cases through off-site pre-fabrication and construction.
