Katerra is on a mission to change the multi-trillion dollar global construction industry by optimizing every aspect of building design, materials supply, and construction. 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.
With its new 250K square foot mass timber manufacturing facility in Spokane Valley, WA, Katerra is helping to scale the production of mass timber in the U.S. so the material can be more broadly adopted across the construction industry. Mass timber represents the future of high performance building technology as a new market for building materials that are safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly.
This is Katerra’s second year supporting the conference as a Premier Sponsor. Visit Katerra in booth #317.

Freres Lumber Co. is excited to announce the development of a new-to-market, veneer-based engineered wood product—Mass Plywood Panel (MPP).
MPP is a massive, large scale, structural composite lumber based panel designed as an alternative to cross laminated timber (CLT). Freres Lumber MPP recently received certification under the Cross Laminated Timber standard PRG 320. Studies show that using veneer as a raw material for a Mass Plywood Panel can potentially achieve the same structural attributes of a CLT panel with 20% less wood.
This is the second year that Freres Lumber Co. has sponsored the International Mass Timber Conference Lounge, where you can visit with the Freres Lumber team throughout the event.

Oregonʼs forests are vast—and so too are the issues and challenges that impact their continued health and productivity. In 1991, the Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) to enhance collaboration among forest scientists, public agencies, community organizations, conservation groups and forest landowners; to provide objective information about responsible forest management; and to encourage environmentally sound forest practices through training and other educational programs.
OFRI is dedicated to advancing public understanding of forests, forest management and forest products, and encouraging sound forestry through landowner education.
OFRI has been an annual sponsor and supporter of the International Mass Timber Conference since the very beginning. Timm Locke, OFRI’s Director of Forest Products, serves on the event steering committee.
