TIMBERLAB OPENS NEW EAST COAST FACILITY

The newly renovated 75,000-square-foot Greenville, SC facility begins operations in April 2023 and expects to be at full capacity by the second quarter of 2024. Our goal is to provide the Eastern United States with a more regional platform for sustainable, low-carbon building materials and accelerate the mainstream adoption of mass timber construction to benefit the planet and its people.

10 stories of mass timber material erected on the world's largest outdoor shaketable was put shaken using earthquake simulation to test and validate timber's safety in a tall building application

NHERI 10-STORY TALL TIMBER TOWER WITHSTANDS 100 EARTHQUAKES

The research conducted on the NHERI 10-Story structure has yielded promising results for the mass timber industry. It has successfully demonstrated that tall timber buildings can effectively withstand seismic force. This breakthrough in earthquake-resistant design has far-reaching implications for the future of timber construction, offering a sustainable and resilient alternative for tall buildings in seismic-prone areas like the West Coast. As of June 2023, the 10-story timber tower has undergone over 100 seismic tests with no significant structural damage to the building. The success of the testing bolsters confidence in the use of mass timber as a sustainable and resilient building material.

Tall Timber + Seismic Resiliency

SETTING NEW RECORDS

Ascent, the groundbreaking timber tower, proudly holds the prestigious title of the world's tallest hybrid mass timber building. At 25 stories, this iconic project gracefully combines the strength of mass timber with cutting-edge construction techniques, revolutionizing the possibilities of vertical living.

Ascent has captivated industry experts and garnered global recognition, hailed as a true testament to the limitless potential of tall timber construction. The project yielded significant schedule savings through our detailed prefabrication and coordination expertise. Additionally, Timberlab facilitated the testing of glulam columns to receive a 3-hour fire-resistance rating - a test that had yet to be conducted anywhere in the world.
