The Ascent building in Milwaukee, Wis., is a recent mass timber project from Timberlab parent company Swinerton.

Swinerton, the commercial construction and services provider, has launched Timberlab.

According to Swinerton, Timberlab promises to deliver the full lifecycle of a mass timber project from inception to installation. 

With primary operations in the Pacific Northwest and the Southeast, Timberlab has grown to serve clients from coast to coast on projects such as the high-profile Ascent in Milwaukee, Wis.

A Swinerton Incorporated company, Timberlab will expand on the product and service offerings of Swinerton Mass Timber under this new brand, while retaining and reinforcing their roots in general contracting. 

The company said it will transition the Swinterton Mass Timber brand to Timberlab while retaining its vision of the mainstream adoption of mass timber construction. Swinerton said that Timberlab has “mastery” over timber engineering practices, timber fabrication, the mass timber supply chain and installation. 

Timberlab provides design-build timber structures, fully coordinated mass timber supply packages, and mass timber product development to the market.

“Our goal at Timberlab is to make your mass timber projects pencil, and be your partner and resource wherever you require support in that process—we know how to design timber with the whole structure in mind,” said Timberlab President Chris Evans. “It’s part of Timberlab’s vision to promote the mainstream adoption of mass timber and show how sustainable development can be both financially beneficial and achievable.”

Swinerton, a 100% employee-owned company, and Timberlab are based in Portland, Ore.
