Katerra, a Silicon Valley startup focused on the construction industry, is hardly 3 years old. But during last three years apart from receiving $865 million in funding from the SoftBank Vision Fund, has pitched itself as a disruptor in the staid construction industry. It is expected that its innovative technology, and focus on vertically integrating the building process, will allow it to build better, faster, and cheaper than conventional firms.

Recently, Michael Green Architecture Inc. (MGA), a globally recognized leader in mass timber architecture, became part of Katerra. This new partnership will bring together technology, manufacturing, and design excellence to offer more sustainable, cost effective, and elegant architecture options to global markets.
