People have always appreciated the timeless appeal of wood, and timber products are naturally durable, versatile and cost-effective. Recognizing this, Marshall Turner and a team of timber construction specialists founded Western Wood Structures in 1969. Their innovative ideas in the design, sale and installation of engineered wood systems resulted in the company becoming an industry leader. Today, under the leadership of Steve Turner, the company continues to leverage more than 40 years of experience in the design and wholesale distribution of engineered glulam beams and arches, heavy timber trusses, timber bridges, the repair of wood beams and trusses, and VARAX domes.

Western Wood Structures’ many wonders with wood include thousands of wide-ranging projects, from a small wooden bridge spanning a mountain stream, to the longest, clear-span, timber vehicular-bridge in the world-the International Airport Bridge in Hiroshima, Japan. From building a play shelter to protect school children from the Oregon rain, to the design and erection of the largest timber domes in the world, Western Wood Structures offers the expertise in engineered timber design, fabrication and installation that only decades of specialization can bring.

We provide a complete range of service, from your initial idea to the finished and installed product. Our experienced salespeople will discuss your project with you and recommend value-engineered designs to best accomplish your goals.
