Innovating in Education with TimberQuest
We’ve developed TimberQuest which offers a prefabricated, high-quality and cost-competitive mass timber solution for education buildings that is California Division of State Architect pre-approved for rapid installation at California K-12 public schools and community colleges.
“We worked with XL Construction previously, so it was natural for us to reach out to them for ideas—and the TimberQuest concept had immediate appeal.”
