Sansin Protects First Mass Timber Structure in Washington State

December 2020 —–

NATURALLY PERFECT® WOOD PROTECTION

The five-story Catalyst building in Spokane, WA, is the first office building in the state constructed of environmentally friendly cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, which were sourced by Katerra. The 150,000-square foot project was designed by Michael Green Architecture to be one of the largest zero-carbon, zeroenergy buildings in North America. Catalyst anchors the new South Landing eco-district neighborhood in Spokane, which is a model for sustainable development and a place where business and academia intersect. To bring out the character of the wood and add to the sustainability requirements of the project, Sansin products were used throughout. Inside, Sansin’s KP-12 UVW and SDF Topcoat in a custom tint were used on the lighter areas while Purity Stain (Midnight) and Purity Glacier created the bolder accents. The exterior CLT soffits, as well as the Alaskan yellow cedar cladding and columns, were coated with KP-12UVW and SDF Topcoat.
