Erica Spiritos

Erica is the Founder and Director of Erica Spiritos LLC, and has a long history of working with mass timber. Erica graduated Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering. 

Erica has worked on a tall wood building with father’s real estate development company, educated the AEC industry in the Pacific Northwest as a Mass Timber Specialist with a leading mass timber manufacturer, helped launched Swinerton’s mass timber division, and transformed that division into a separate business entity – Timberlab – delivering design-build mass timber structures across the United States. For the past six years, she has worked on leading-edge projects across the country, including the First Tech Federal Credit Union in Hillsboro, OR; the Ascent tower in Milwaukee, WI; the Portland International Airport in Portland, OR.

Between 2021 - 2023, Erica served as the Vice President and Preconstruction Manager of Timberlab, which helped to solidify her position as an expert in mass timber project delivery, supply chain knowledge and sustainable wood sourcing.  Her commitment to social justice and inclusion shines through in projects like Heartwood, a workforce housing project in Seattle, and the Beaverton Public Safety Center, a facility built to support safety for first responders.  In recent years, Erica was named by ThinkWood as one of six women innovating in AEC and Beyond.
