Mass timber is a construction framing methodology that makes use of new wood technology and advances in manufacturing. In this guide, we will outline a few critical phases of a mass timber building project.
Phase 01: Selecting the Property and Finding Your Architect
Before a mass timber building project can begin, you must have a property and a selected architect. The architect will work with you throughout the project. They play an essential role in crafting a building in alignment with the demands of the property.
Phase 02: Meet with Seagate
Meeting with Seagate Structures is another important phase. During this meeting, you will create a “wishlist” for your project, set a budget, and plan for the next steps of your mass timber building project.
Our team will assign a project manager to you that will assist you throughout the project.
Phase 03: Permitting
Acquiring a building permit application is another essential step of any mass timber building project. To do so, you will need to submit your plans to the property’s municipal government. Our team will assist with this process.
Phase 04: Manufacturing
Seagate Structures will obtain and fabricate mass timber materials as needed for your building project. We will prepare them ahead of time so that they are ready for on-site installation.
During the manufacturing phase, we will offer you extensive options for pricing, dimensions, and materials.
Phase 05: Installation
As soon as the foundation is ready, Seagate Structures will begin installing the mass timber structure. Every element is precisely prefabricated, allowing our team to work quickly. Installations with mass timber are significantly faster than other framing materials.
