Leadership of design, planning, entitlements, permitting and construction of Sunnyvale’s first mass timber building, a five-story office.
XL was one of the earliest adopters of mass timber. In partnership with forward-thinking clients, we have invested in researching, developing and rethinking the entire process of how buildings are built. Now we are leading the way in providing mass timber as a more sustainable solution to a wide range of clients throughout the Bay Area.
From small scale education facilities to large corporate office buildings, we are delivering a diverse range of mass timber structures while supporting our partners with a common goal: to build better, faster, more sustainably and have a positive impact on the environment.
When we build with sustainable timber, we decrease the embodied carbon of a building by 15-30%. Our deep mass timber expertise and innovation has also enabled us to standardize mass timber solutions to be more cost effective. Our clients have reaped the benefits of faster project delivery as well as enhanced occupant experience through biophilic design. Using sustainable timber as a building material, we create environments that inspire ideas, promote whole-body wellness and encourage productivity.
Successful mass timber projects don’t occur by accident; they require extensive planning and collaboration – as early as during the conceptual stage – in order for a project to proceed smoothly and efficiently. This means completely rethinking the traditional sequencing of a project, procuring resources, onboarding partners and making design decisions early in order to ensure quality, schedule and budget goals can be achieved.
As innovators and early adopters in mass timber, our capabilities and expertise in this sustainable building solution run deep. Our mass timber services include:
As early adopters and leaders in mass timber building, we have developed our own proprietary prefabricated mass timber solution Timberquest, that is increasing accessibility of all the benefits of mass timber to a broader audience. Features include:
