Mass Timber Construction

Mass timber construction is revolutionizing the field of sustainable building with its myriad benefits. This innovative material utilizes large, prefabricated timber elements to construct robust and eco-friendly structures. By harnessing wood's inherent strength coupled with its fire-resistant and seismically resilient properties, mass timber offers a safe and durable alternative to traditional construction methods. Embracing mass timber is a forward-thinking choice that promotes sustainable development and fosters a healthier, greener future for generations to come. This page is your guide to learning about the benefits of mass timber construction and how Timberlab can help you implement these sustainable materials into your next project.


Timberlab is proud to help accelerate the adoption of mass timber - a natural material with many benefits.

Mass timber is a smart, resilient, and renewable alternative. This natural material provides construction efficiency, environmental benefits, and a positive impact on occupants.

Low Carbon Footprint

As a renewable material, mass timber is better than energy-intensive concrete and steel.

  • Sequesters carbon in the building

  • Protects long-term forest health

  • Ties building to the local area

High Community Impact

Mass timber creates warm interior spaces that connect occupants with nature.

  • Provides cognitive & health benefits

  • Supports rural lumber economies

  • Sparks critical conversations about natural resources

For owners and developers, mass timber makes projects pencil.

Build Faster for Less

Secure occupancy and long-term leases with speed. Prefabricated timber buildings significantly reduce construction time so you can get to market faster.

Offer a New Ideal

Provide a better end-user experience, and it’ll pay dividends. Natural materials improve health and wellness, increase productivity, and reduce stress.

Leave a Lighter Footprint

Increase density while minimizing the environmental impact. Timber offsets emissions associated with energy-intensive construction and stores carbon in the structure.
