Industrial Mass Timber: EGGER Wood Products Production Facility
Global wood product manufacturer EGGER chose a mass timber system designed for long spans and heavy loads for a portion of their new particleboard production facility—a building they call the centerpiece of their first U.S. plant. The decision to use mass timber reflects EGGER’s dedication to the wood industry and innovative plant design, while its natural fire resistance made it a fire-safe building choice. This case study details the unique mass timber configuration, the advantages of mass timber for this application, and how the team tackled the challenges of industrial building design.
