Event Details

Join SPIRE for a tour of Katerra’s Seattle architecture office and then a dinner afterwards. We will be hosted by Craig Curtis, the President of Katerra Architecture.

Katerra is a Menlo Park-based construction startup with a $3 billion valuation. (You don’t typically hear startup and $3 billion valuation in the same sentence. And, yes, you read it right.)

Katerra’s secret is utilizing tech in construction to streamline the building process with supply-chain know-how.

Katerra’s goal is to help build construction projects faster and at lower costs by controlling all aspects of the process from design through construction. Materials are meant to arrive at building sites only when they’re needed and are ready to assemble.

Eastern Washington will be the location of one of Katerra’s manufacturing facilities, where it will manufacture cross laminated timber (CLT) which is said to be strong enough to replace concrete and steel.

The firm is focused on five types of residential buildings: multifamily, student, senior, hospitality and single-family homes.
