Mass Timber

March 1, 2024

Mass timber is a building product defined as wood components that are laminated, glued, nailed, or doweled together in layers creating a strong, low-carbon alternative to concrete and steel. Using mass timber helps to reduce embodied carbon in our built environment. Princeton University projects using various forms of mass timber include University Health Services, Class of 1986 Health and Wellness, Princeton University Art Museum, Hobson College, ES & SEAS and Schmidt Hall.
