For Albina Yard, LEVER worked collaboratively with the project’s design-build team including the contractor, structural engineer, and fabricator to create the building’s mass timber connections. The glulam wood columns and beams were milled at CutMyTimber in Portland, Oregon, using a Hundegger K2 CNC joinery machine. The use of CAD/CAM software and CNC technology allowed the team to rapidly design and prototype precise connections, milled to an 1/8” tolerance. The team’s 3D model integrated the assembly’s concealed steel connections, which were also precision-fabricated at CutMyTimber.
