New LP Innovation Center in Minnesota

See this new collaborative space hoping to ramp up innovative products

A new building materials research center utilizing the work of the Natural Resources Research Institute and LP Building Solutions opened in June. The University of Minnesota Duluth facility features a “full-scale mock house, display wall, and small-scale fabrication shop, allowing LP to evaluate and optimize installation and application methods for engineered wood home-building products”.

LP Executive Vice President Jimmy Mason said the collaborative space will lead to “solutions-driven products”. The facility is located in close proximity to a siding mill in Two Harbors, Minnesota.

LP’s announcement said the new facility will provide a controlled environment for rigorous evaluation and testing in partnership with NRRI’s building science and engineering teams.
