Bullitt Center 6-story Mass Timber

Among it’s other life-affirming innovations, the Bullitt Center is part of a renaissance of mass-timber construction in non-residential buildings gaining momentum in the Northwest and around the world! It’s structural frame of glulam columns and beams, structural diaphragm floor decks made of “nail-laminated” 2x6s on edge covered with plywood – all FSC-certified from renewable local sources to meet the rigorous standards of the “Living Building Challenge.” It may be the “greenest building” but over a typical 50-year lifespan, the Bullitt Center is projected to be more profitable than most if not all commercial office buildings, and endure 5 times longer!
