T3 (Timber, Transit, Technology) is the first commercial property in the United States to use wood for its structure and interior. The 7-storey, 220,000-square-foot building was constructed with 8-foot-by-20-foot panels of wood that were stacked across beams of glued, laminated timber. The panels themselves were constructed using dimension lumber.

Project Details

Project Facts

  • Timber structure was erected at a speed exceeding conventional steel-framed or concrete buildings, completed in just 2.5 months at an average of 9 days per floor.
  • Over 1100 8’x20’ NLT (Nail Laminated Timber) panels are used in the project.
  • Approximately 2.2 million board feet were used in the structure, which will sequester about 700 tons of carbon for the life of the building.
