The Soto Mass Timber Office Building

PROGRESS UPDATE: We are well into installation of the timber on site. See below pictures and stay tuned for more!

The 6 story Soto Office Building will give San Antonio its first mass timber project. This project will be in the first phase of a sustainable, walkable urban neighborhood project at Broadway and 8th streets.

The building will have 5 stories of timber structure over 1 storey of concrete. DLT (dowel-laminated timber) panels will be used for the exposed floor and roof decks and these will be supported by a Glulam post and beam substructure.

We joined Lake Flato and Boka Powell early in concept design as the structural engineer for the timber superstructure. As design-builders, we were able to provide early pricing, giving the team confidence to proceed.

One of the features of the building will be its brick facade, making it one of the first North American projects to combine mass timber with heavy brick - this has presented design challenges which we have successfully solved along with the design team.
