A Sustainable Timber Skyline: The Future of Design

The design and structural craft of building with wood in America is finally changing – for the better. Innovations in the timber industry and the rise of cross-laminated timber (CLT)* are forcing Oregonians sitting on the richest sustainable resource, the Douglas Fir, to rethink how to harvest, sustain and reshape the future. *Cross-laminated timber is a wood panel typically consisting of three, five, or seven layers of dimension lumber oriented at right angles to one another and then glued to…

The Association was founded in 2021 for global inclusion

Our sector has genuine collaboration at its core. For mass timber to succeed, collaboration, not compromise, is what is required to realise the benefits. It is a value we all hold, and we must trust that others hold it when at times its seems like we are the minority to understand it. We stand at the face of modern methods of construction, and as the two worlds collide – traditional and modern methods – there is enviably change management required.…
