The Loading Dock

The Loading Dock is Boulder’s first cross-laminated timber (CLT) building and one of only a few in the nation to fully integrate CLT into its walls, floors, roof, and structure. The existing building was transformed and reinterpreted from its original function into an office featuring a wood-planked, pedestrian-friendly elevated boardwalk that connects the outdoors to the office environment.

CLT is made from engineered wood panels laminated together in alternating directions to enhance its strength. Beyond the authentic feel CLT creates, it also offers substantial waste reduction and environmental benefits. Other notable features include photovoltaic roof panels and a green screen integrated into the balcony railing which shades the outdoor deck space during the summer months.
