Over three decades ago we started New Energy Works Timberframing, a small timber frame company. Today, along with our sister companies Pioneer Millworks and NEWwoodworks, we employ over 150 designers, timberwrights, engineers, craftspeople, and community members in our NY and OR locations.
Together, we design and build some of the most lyrical and efficient timber frames in the industry, using reclaimed timbers, environmentally responsible practices, and state-of-the-art technology and software. When you work with us, you are purchasing products made in a shop that runs on solar power and is heated from our own timber scrap. Our efforts at reclaiming wood have processed over 1 million board feet a year for the past 28 years, saving this wood from landfills, incineration, and rot. Our Earth is a place we want to leave well for the next generation through buildings that are energy-efficient and enduring.
New Energy Works operates on the triple bottom line—a simple belief that people, planet, and profit work together to ensure a better future. We give to our local and global communities. When we take care of our people and our planet, we are more profitable. This enables us... to invest in efforts that make a difference to our workers’ families and our local and global communities, creates a healthier planet, and most importantly builds a thoughtful company that thrives on quality partnerships. Our coworkers are more than just employees, they’re part of what makes our company successful. We are an employee owned company. We truly care about our craftsmen, and they truly care about your project.
New Energy Works clients hail from all over North America (and sometimes beyond). We build these relationships from our shops in New York and Oregon, along with a handful of trusted partners in the US and Canada. Our clients' dreams, wants, and needs are as diverse as their locations. Their common thread is love of fine wood, elegant design, and quality craft.
