We can have beautiful, safe, functional, environmentally responsible, and more affordable housing. No compromises necessary.
Today's engineered wood building materials (be listening for terms like "mass timber" or "CLT") are revolutionizing the way mid-size and large-scale buildings are being built. These changes can reduce costs, even while expanding our horizons when it comes to carbon-friendly construction.
Thousands are living in mass-timber buildings in Asia, Europe, Australia, and even just to our north in Canada. U.S. building codes are already adapting to embrace this new possibility.
