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.

A small but impactful CLT first-floor addition in Johannesburg. The use of engineered timber in this alteration showcases its potential as a low impact, high performance building solution. With rapid assembly and minimal disruption to the client, prefabrication played a key role in reducing construction time and environmental impact.
