Mass timber building solutions

Our team of industry-leading experts can support your next project with early design engagement, material sourcing, manufacturing precision, logistics coordination, assembly and installation.

Core services

Our commitment to quality at each phase in the value chain includes strategic sourcing of lamstock; onsite scanning, sorting, kilning, and pressing; and computerized numerical control (CNC) cutting and finishing technology. Our in-house logistics experts examine each job to consider delivery windows, modes of transport, carbon footprint, costs, and more.

Our factories optimize core advanced manufacturing processes to develop the highest quality timber panels at competitive pricing.

Our standardized high-performance mass timber building components and assemblies improve design flexibility and optimize cost while maintaining aesthetics. We employ robust technology systems and high-volume fabrication, using parametric design as a framework to achieve quality, speed, and competitive pricing.

Mercer Mass Timber is dedicated to collaborative project delivery. We use Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to help guide safe, cost-effective, on-time project delivery. As an integrated product-to-project company, we’re available to source, design, manufacture, and construct tailor-made building solutions with nearly 100% predictability.

Our mass timber components can be integrated with timber frame, structural steel, and cold-formed steel at the jobsite to create hybrid structural solutions to meet your needs.

Our mass timber installation team operates across North America, utilizing technology-driven management practices to ensure delivery is both on-time and on-budget. By reducing scope gaps and effectively managing changes, we achieve seamless coordination from the factory to the job site. Our approach is rounded out by meticulous logistics planning and stringent quality control, culminating in installations that are cost-optimized, efficient, and risk-managed.

From Products to Projects

An integrated design process

MMT offers a unique value proposition: a fully integrated design, engineering, and construction partner with robust technology systems and large-scale buying power.

  • Phase 01


    Identify and select the materials for mass timber products. At this stage, the focus is on conceptualizing the species and visual expectations of mass timber elements, for example CLT or glulam.
  • Phase 02


    Definition of grid and adequate linear components such as glulam members, with approximate sizes and spatial relationships. It includes a rough estimation of quantities and dimensions for initial structural design purposes.

  • Phase 03


    Modeling of mass timber components, specifying exact planar dimensions, locations, and typical connections. This level supports detailed design decisions, integration with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, and facilitates clash detection.

  • Phase 04

    Fabrication Optimization

    Enhancement and refinement of the model to include detailed assemblies, connections, and interfaces among mass timber components and with other construction elements. The model at this stage serves as a basis for generating detailed construction documents, cost estimates, and procurement lists. Model overlaid with transparent, accurate and predictive cost data.

  • Phase 05


    The model includes detailed information for fabrication, indicating exact sizes, holes, notches, and other fabrication details. It guides the CNC machining process and ensures each element is ready for assembly, matching the design intent perfectly. Components are manufactured to achieve a just-in-time delivery.
  • Phase 06


    The final phase involves receiving and safely installing the mass timber elements on site according to the detailed design and manufacturing specifications. Activities are sequenced to increase efficiency with on-site delivery and assembly.

    Design to fabrication

    At our factories, we use technology to translate your design into digital instructions for our machines. Our cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels are cut using state-of-the-art five-axis CNC gantry machines, resulting in high-quality components ready for shipping and installation.

    By leveraging available advanced technology, we create efficiencies at each stage of the process, from sourcing materials to building.

    Applying design best practices creates a streamlined experience that cuts down on waste, reduces costs, and accelerates the building process.

    Prefabrication in a controlled factory environment allows an unprecedented level of precision and predictability in the construction process.
