Katerra believes that better, faster, cheaper building projects are long overdue. The multi-trillion dollar global construction industry is ready for change. Construction companies traditionally invest less than 1% of revenue in new technologies—lower than every other major industry. As a result, the last several decades have seen U.S. construction productivity fall while costs continue to go up. Katerra is on a mission to change this by optimizing every aspect of building design, materials supply, and construction. Their team combines decades of industry experience alongside leadership from some of the most groundbreaking companies in technology, manufacturing, design, and engineering.

Mass Plywood Panels (MPP) are a massive, large scale, structural composite lumber based panel designed as an alternative to cross laminated timber (CLT). Using veneer as a raw material for a Mass Timber Panel achieves the same structural attributes of a CLT panel with 20% less wood. Large format panels are manufactured at the production facility to include window, door, and all other required cut-outs, which minimizes waste and labor on the job site. The relative lightness of the panels helps transportation costs and logistics when constructing buildings on-site. MPP is certified under the Cross Laminated Timber standard PRG 320.
Freres Lumber Co. MPP is the Lounge sponsor for the third year in a row. See them in the middle of the Exhibit Hall at booth #415.
