OZ Architecture has completed more mass timber projects than any other design firm in Colorado. We are at the forefront of the industry, driving the use of mass timber across the Front Range and nationwide. Aesthetically beautiful, utilizing mass timber is also helping OZ achieve its sustainability goals.

OZ’s expertise in this area is unmatched—we’re proud to have designed the first Timber/CLT office buildings in Denver and Boulder—and we’re always eager to share our knowledge. Thanks to our existing relationships with an extensive network of suppliers, we have a distinct advantage, and our proven experience has delivered numerous innovative and award-winning mass timber projects.

Why Mass Timber?

Mass timber has momentum nationwide, and the Front Range of Colorado is no exception. It is being utilized to bring a modern wood aesthetic to a variety of project types, including offices, multi-family/mixed-use, commercial, and more.

By incorporating natural elements, end-users of these spaces have proven to be more effective, productive, and happier. The mass timber production process uses less energy and correctly utilizes a renewable resource through sustainable wood management practices. Waste is also reduced with mass timber elements as smaller wood members, previously unsuitable for framing elements, are laminated together.
