Engineered Wood Project Cases

Mass timber might be made in factories using standardized, quality-controlled processes, and shipped in a prefabricated format, but there are countless variations in the way that can be applied. Here we present some examples of how our customers’ products are used in award-winning commercial and residential buildings.

Be inspired by how mass timber is making its way into resort hotels, schools, flagship corporate headquarters, student housing, luxury condominiums, sport facilities, and even parking garages and manufacturing plants.

Our customers make Cross-Laminated Timber, Glulam and Finger-Jointed Timber products from wood that is sourced from sustainably managed forests and bonded with Henkel Loctite structural adhesives.

Their processes create a solid wood material with the strength of concrete but a lower carbon footprint and a lighter weight. In turn, architects and engineers use it to fulfil green building strategies, overcome construction site challenges, or simply create beautiful iconic designs.
