Urban Timberworks

Artisan Furniture from Salvaged Urban Trees™

Over the years, we have successfully delivered high-quality sustainable wood products to our commercial clients, many of whom are trying to achieve Materials and Resources Credits for the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system. 

Because most of our wood is salvaged, we can help you earn 1 or 2 points under Materials and Resources Credit 3 (MRc3) “Materials Reuse", which recommends using salvaged, refurbished or reused materials for 5% or 10% of the project (by cost), resulting in 1 or 2 points awarded, respectively. In addition, because our wood is sourced in the Portland Metro area, we can help your project qualify for the Materials and Resources Credit 5 (MRc5) “Regional Materials”. Achieve up to 2 points when 10% – 20% of building materials (by cost) have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site. 

The LEED-Gold certified Edna Holmes Residence Hall for Lewis and Clark College is one of the best examples of our commercial work. 

We are currently accepting new commercial clients. Please contact us for help designing your next LEED-certified project.
