Mass Timber Engineering and Mass Timber Construction.
StructureCraft has pioneered the use of mass timber in North America, with a turnkey project delivery (with full engineering services) bringing early design value and a kit-of-parts approach that improves speed to market.
We come alongside the owner, consultant team and contractor as the structural engineer and builder to bring mass timber buildings to reality.
StructureCraft has been building signature timber structures since 1998, and helped spark the modern mass timber “revolution” that is currently being experienced in North America. We have demonstrated that through efficient design and construction, timber can be used competitively in multi-storey buildings.
We have successfully engineered and built over 2 million sqft of timber buildings over the last 5 years, ranging from large multi-storey developer projects to smaller boutique projects. In addition to Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glulam, many of these have utilized the mass timber product we manufacture, Dowel Laminated Timber (DLT).
Eliminate the Guesswork
As a project partner, StructureCraft helps solve challenges that are unique to mass timber engineering and construction – not only related to structural systems, but architectural and MEP as well.
We have designed with every lateral system available in both seismic and non-seismic regions:
- Concrete or CMU core
- Braced frame (steel or wood)
- CLT with hold downs
- Post-tensioned CLT core walls with energy dissipators
- Precast concrete
- Light frame shear walls with mass timber panels
- DLT shear walls
Benefits of Mass Timber
Mass timber provides design flexibility, environmental advantages, and cost benefits. Wood is one of the most sustainable means of construction and Mass Timber building systems can offer an efficient solution for large-scale commercial buildings.
- Fire Resistant
- Structural Performance
- Faster on-site Construction
- Design Versatility
Mass Timber Materials
We manufacture or source a range of mass timber products including DLT, CLT, NLT, and Glulam as well as steel components such as connections, cables, and castings. Our experience in engineering and construction of timber structures includes supply and install of integrated materials such as glass, steel, and concrete.
