MASS TIMBER CONSTRUCTION
With welcoming timber columns, beams and ceilings, The Soto will bring a calming charm and wellness of nature into the workplace. Not only is timber construction beautiful, it is exceptionally sustainable. Concrete and steel buildings have large carbon footprints, whereas The Soto's timber structure is carbon negative. Through responsible forestry practices, young growth trees are harvested for the building's construction. The carbon dioxide absorbed into the wood as these trees grow is captured and harvested. New trees are then planted and the cycle of carbon-banking is repeated.
