Tacoma

A CLT & Mass Timber Event

Join leaders across sectors at the University of Washington Tacoma, Wednesday, Feb. 26, for a full day of learning, discourse and highlighting recent successes.

Together we will explore the foremost issues and opportunities facing a sustainable cross laminated timber (CLT) and mass timber market in Washington State.

Since hosting our initial CLT summit in 2015, Forterra has convened a statewide coalition to address the key barriers and opportunities to establishing a CLT market. As a result of the statewide collaboration, we secured state funding for CLT modular classrooms, technical assistance and research, updated state building codes, and positioned Washington as a potential leader in building a sustainable future.
