Timberlab Sustainable Development Career Day

Learn about the future of sustainable development and design at Timberlab. Go behind-the-scenes at the company that designed Portland International Airport’s beautiful, cutting-edge new mass-timber roof. See the design and manufacturing process and talk with professionals in engineering, construction, business and development about their career paths. Explore this new way to reduce the carbon footprint of our built environment!
