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.
WHY MASS TIMBER MAKES SENSE
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.
