HOLISTIC MASS TIMBER SYSTEMS

We have mastery over timber engineering practices, timber fabrication, and the mass timber supply chain.

OUR PROCESS

Design vertical

DESIGN

Design takes time. It is a process of creation, revision, and re-creation. We iterate, we invent, we are a partner, and the link to translating the design intent into fabrication-level information. We make sure timber components integrate elegantly with other building systems.

Build v3

BUILD

We fabricate buildings as a kit of custom components milled to precise tolerances. Our continuity of service, from design through installation, elevates the quality of our projects, and allows us to deliver buildings with improved schedule and safety outcomes.

DISCOVER

Through research, testing, mock-ups, and product development, we seek to push the boundaries of mass timber. We are constantly learning; willing to explore new ideas and systems toward accelerating the adoption of mass timber.

FEATURED PROJECT

Ascent

OWNER
New Land Enterprises

ARCHITECT
Korb + Associates Architects

STRUCTURAL ENGINEER
Thornton Tomasetti

GENERAL CONTRACTOR
C.D. Smith Construction

LOCATION: Milwaukee, WI

TIMBERLAB ROLE: Design Assist, Supply of mass timber structure

SCHEDULE: Under Construction

The Ascent tower will stand 25 stories tall encompassing a mass timber housing above six stories of concrete parking. The 273,000-square-feet of mass timber will support 260 residential units featuring exposed wood columns, beams, and ceilings. The project received a federal wood innovation grant, with all of the research being released to the public domain to aid in the development of future mass timber buildings.
