Katerra is moving its Spokane office to the Wonder Building on the north bank of the Spokane River downtown, according to city permit data.
The California-based, off-site construction startup will do $780,000 in improvements to more than 10,000 square feet of space in the Wonder Building, 835 N. Post St., which is a former industrial bread bakery. Katerra’s office relocation is expected to happen in the fall.
Katerra opened an cross-laminated timber products factory in Spokane Valley this year. The 250,000-square-foot plant will make structural panels and beams from wood scraps that are glued together in layers and compressed to produce cross-laminated timber. The factory, which is still under construction, has begun limited production. Last week, the company delivered the first CLT panels to Avista’s Catalyst project at the south landing of the University District Gateway Bridge.
