PENTICTON, B.C. – Structurlam Mass Timber Corporation has hired Jon Potter as its newest mass timber specialist.
Based out of Seattle, Potter will be responsible for building the company’s regional presence in the Pacific Northwest by promoting and expanding Structurlam’s mass timber 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 per cent, 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,” Kostaras added.
Potter has a master’s degree in civil engineering and his background is in structural analysis and design focusing on wood design projects.
