Just as the farm-to-table movement changes how we relate to food; our team developed the phrase “Forest to Frame” to describe how a project can reshape the way people think about wood construction.
In the Pacific Northwest, our forests produce some of the world’s best timber, renowned for its beauty and strength. Wood offers a cornucopia of delights in texture, color, patterns, feel, and sound. Buildings made from wood also benefit the occupant experience by triggering the senses to produce beneficial mental and physical responses through the nervous system.
Framework is driven by these ingredients, the materials that will go into constructing the building. Using wood that sequesters carbon is a natural extension of a longstanding commitment among the architects, engineers, and developers to produce truly sustainable buildings.
