Structurlam Celebrates Addition of New Mass Timber Specialist in the Pacific Northwest Region
Jon Potter Joins Structurlam, the Leading Manufacturer of Mass Timber in North America
Penticton, B.C. — Structurlam Mass Timber Corporation, the leading mass timber manufacturer in North America, has welcomed Jon Potter as the company’s newest mass timber specialist.
Based in Seattle, Potter will be responsible for building Structurlam’s Pacific Northwest regional presence, continuing to promote and expand the company’s mass timber projects. With a master’s degree in civil engineering, he has a background in structural analysis and design with a focus on wood design projects.
“The Pacific Northwest is a strong market for mass timber construction, with several towers and large projects in production and design,” said John Kostaras, vice president of construction sales for Structurlam. “A key economic benefit of mass timber is the ability to design, model and prefabricate the structural elements of a project offsite, accelerating on-site production schedules by up to 25%, compared with traditional on-site building with steel and concrete. Jon’s background and practical experience in structural and civil engineering have prepared him to service this growth market as we continue to advance the mass timber movement across North America.”
