Mass Timber Construction

The new Walmart campus office buildings are being constructed from mass timber, the latest in precision engineered, design, and construction practices because it is sustainable, efficient and available regionally. With more than 2.4 million square feet of office space constructed from mass timber, Walmart’s new campus is the largest mass timber campus development currently under construction in the United States.

A benefit of mass timber is the opportunity to prefabricate the complete structural building system – enhancing precision from design to delivery, saving both time and money across the project.

Structurlam, North America’s leading provider of mass timber solutions and our manufacturing partner, has expanded their operations beyond British Columbia, Canada, to the U.S. south with their first manufacturing facility in Conway, Arkansas. Structurlam’s Conway mass timber facility will source wood from the sustainably managed forests in the Natural State. 

The use of regionally-sourced mass timber will also connect associates with nature and the beauty of Arkansas in their workspace. We’re excited to demonstrate how traditional, regenerative materials and resources will be used in new and innovative ways to construct our new campus offices.
