Catalyst – Five Stories of Mass Timber in Spokane

Catalyst – Spokane, WA

Aptly named for its goal of inspiring new ways to build, Catalyst is the first cross-laminated timber (CLT) office building constructed in Washington state. It is also designed to Passive House principles and to achieve zero-carbon and zero-energy certification from the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), making it a leading example of sustainable building design.
