About Carpentry Plus

Carpentry Plus has developed a track record of high performance through collaboration in the design and building of heavy timber and mass timber structures. Our team’s first-hand experience lends perspective to ensure each project fulfills its target objectives. We bring a series of best practices for common mass timber building elements as well as creative problem solving for new and unique challenges. We can come to the table in a design assist role or through delegated design of the mass timber structure in partnership with Stonewood Structural Engineers.

We believe value goes far beyond dollars and cents. Our approach to design and value engineering ensures that project resources can be devoted to the successful achievement of the most critical, unique, and challenging aspects of each mass timber project by:

  • Applying the best practices and approaches
  • Maximizing the mass timber materials
  • Minimizing or eliminating design overlap 
  • Identifying opportunities for pre-fabrication 
  • Mitigating or eliminating changes during fabrication and construction
  • Expanding knowledge and resources throughout the team 
  • Identifying opportunities for design enhancements

Our Mission

To unleash the full potential of mass timber construction to the benefit of owners, communities, and the world one project at a time.

Our Story

Carpentry Plus was founded in 1993 by the Brotnov family with the desire to create unique and extraordinary spaces that enrich the Pacific Northwest. We believe the aesthetic of well-built, beautiful structures elevate the wellbeing of the community. Today, our dedicated team caries this legacy to push the boundaries of mass timber through each of our design-build, design-assist projects.

Our Team

Mass timber reaches its capacities by orienting the strengths of many members into a far greater whole. At Carpentry Plus, Inc. we draw inspiration from this. Our team of skilled leaders, employees, and business partners form a strong collaborative partner for our client’s projects. We have found this partnership allows us to break down the complexities of mass timber to provide predictable results, lower costs, and safer construction.

The CPI team of employees and industry partners have the experience necessary to build the envelope-pushing wood structures of tomorrow.
