As the First Certified Manufacturer of Cross-Laminated Timber in the United States, we are very proud to be apart of the Mass Timber Movement! Cross-Laminated Timber was first developed in Australia in the early 1900’s, designed to create a more sustainable form of construction for residential construction. DR Johnson started producing Cross-Laminated Timber in 2015, and now, CLT is the most familiar and widely-used Mass Timber product in the U.S. In order for a construction project to be classified as a “Mass Timber Project,” the load-bearing structure would be constructed with the use of Mass Timber. Most applications that use Cross-Laminated Timber are office buildings, hotels, multi-use buildings, public & institutional buildings, school and academic buildings, and multi-family residences.
