Mass timber projects are going up in countries around the world. These projects range from multi-story commercial buildings to high-end residential construction.
Stiles Machinery takes a look at mass timber. In this video, Kyle Freres, vice president at Freres Lumber Co., and Levi Huffman, technical director at DR Johnson discuss the benefits of mass timber construction.
