Mercer Mass Timber to Provide Mass Timber for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library

Mercer Mass Timber, a low-carbon advanced manufacturer of timber building materials and a subsidiary of Mercer International Inc., announced on Wednesday that it has been selected to provide mass timber for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library located in North Dakota.

Mercer will be providing approximately 1,800 m3 of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glulam across the project. The sustainable wood will be used for the library’s structure, including the roof structure in phase one. Phase two will incorporate CLT and glulam in exterior features like footbridges and canopies sheltering photovoltaic arrays.

In partnership with general contractor JE Dunn, Mercer will provide mass timber design assistance, materials, and coordination and logistics for the project—including the signature roof structure. Mercer’s mass timber will contribute to the project’s ambitious sustainability goals, aiming for zero energy, water, emissions, and waste. The project honors the president’s legacy of conservation by utilizing locally sourced and renewable resources, like mass timber.
