Report: Oregon leading mass timber movement

Report: Oregon leading mass timber movement

Oregon is setting the pace for the nation in mass timber manufacturing, design and construction. A new report by the Oregon Forest Resources Institute offers insights from the architecture, engineering and construction communities on this burgeoning trend.

Forest to Frame showcases the public and private partnerships contributing to a growing movement that’s redefining how apartments, hotels and offices are constructed.

An exhibition at the National Building Museum in Washington challenges that narrow use. It suggests that tomorrow’s buildings will or should be constructed of wood.
