Rooted in technology, reaching new heights in innovation

Mass Timber Technologies (MTT) is a timber prefabrication company, specialising in the manufacture and supply of large scale, complex building components for use in construction applications. At our facility in Johannesburg, raw lumber is graded, shaped, pressed and robotically cut to the highest quality and accuracy standards.

We offer a wide range of structural mass timber solutions in Cross-laminated Timber (CLT) as well as Glue-laminated Timber (GLT) beams and columns.

Mass timber is a sustainable, durable, accurate and beautiful building product.  With no water use on site, rapid building assembly speeds and a high structural performance, mass timber structures not only reduce the carbon output of a project, but offer a healthy space for the occupants. MTT’s state-of-the-art digital design to fabrication system produces building elements quickly and efficiently to meet the demands of the Southern African construction industry.

Activities and news from the team

From the Drawing Board

There are always projects that don't make it off the drawingboard (or computer screen). This is a counter-proposal from a while back that we really liked but didn't make it past the concept stage. ⁠ The scheme imagines a mixed-use project which utilises a hybrid timber and concrete structure.

Happy 2024 from MTT

Last year was massively formative for the team at MTT and 2024 will be more of the same. We have some very exciting news for the year ahead that we are itching to share. For now, what we can say is that it is going to be another jam-packed 12 months of pushing the envelope of sustainable and high-performance timber.

Test Assemblies

These mock-ups allow architects, engineers, and builders to evaluate the design and assembly process before construction begins. By simulating the final structure, it becomes possible to fine-tune details, assess tolerances, and optimize assembly sequences.
