Timberlab is committed to responsible wood sourcing for our projects and offers creative solutions to meet sustainability and wood procurement goals. We prioritize working with suppliers who adhere to rigorous environmental standards and promote responsible forest management practices. By carefully selecting our timber sources, we aim to minimize our ecological footprint and contribute to the preservation of our planet's precious resources. Through our dedication to sustainable timber procurement, we strive to create a positive impact, not only in the construction industry but also in the preservation of forests for future generations.
STRONG INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIPS
Through a deep understanding of and strong relationships with the mass timber industry, we create strategic procurement plans for each project to meet project design, cost, schedule, and sustainability goals. As part of our overarching effort to expand the mass timber supply chain, we source each mass timber structure from multiple suppliers – coordinating the highest value package for our clients.
We are committed to responsible wood sourcing for our projects and offer creative solutions to meet sustainability and wood procurement goals. We maintain chain of custody certification for FSC®, SFI®, and PEFC™ forest management standards. We also offer more targeted and transparent sourcing opportunities for clients who desire to tell a specific story about where the wood comes from on their project.
EXPANDING THE MARKET
We work with commodity glulam manufacturers that produce high-quality products and pair their offerings with our in-house Digital Construction and Custom Fabrication services to deliver an elegantly detailed, precisely machined kit of parts. In so doing, we double the number of glulam manufacturers bidding on our projects, increasing competition and reducing costs.
KNOWING WHEN TO BUY
Keenly aware of fluctuating lumber prices and exchange rates, as well as manufacturer capacity and product availability, we advise our clients on the most advantageous time to make commitments and set expectations early on when significant deposits must be made.
