The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests Supervisor’s Office is a mass timber building that showcases the work of the U.S. Forest Service. The two-story structure, built in Kamiah, Idaho, fits seamlessly into its remote, scenic location.

The office was one of the first Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) applications by the U.S. Forest Service and the first U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) project to use BioPreferred® CLT. The CLT roof is supported by glulam beams, columns, and light-frame walls and floors—illustrating Nez Perce-Clearwater and other National Forest1 materials.

The structure is set into a sloping site, fitting with the terrain. This gave the building a lower profile, allowing natural light and an open feel. The CLT roof panels reflect that natural light, helping the rooms feel even more spacious.
