Smarter building. Better communities. For everyone.
The global construction industry is one of the last craft industries yet to fully embrace the technology age. Katerra is on a mission to help transform construction through technology–every process and every product. Bringing together decades of direct experience and knowledge from scaling and disrupting major global industries, Katerra’s team is hard at work making this mission a reality.
Solutions across the building life cycle.
Katerra is a new kind of company in the building industry, delivering a comprehensive suite of products and services for our clients. As a full-service partner for developers, architects, general contractors, and sub-contractors, Katerra can provide every product and service needed to deliver the highest quality building projects. This offering is possible because of Katerra’s distinct model, which combines end-to-end integration with significant investment in R&D and innovation.
Katerra is a one-stop-source for every category of materials and building products, supplying both Katerra-built and third-party projects. We aggregate demand to offer economies of scale on material pricing not previously available to individual customers and projects.
Let’s break new ground. Together.
Katerra can meet diverse client needs through a flexible, customizable package of mass timber services and products.
We can provide a turn-key solution including design, supply, and install, or provide a materials-only package, based on the customer’s needs.
