A New StructureCraft Facility - Abbotsford, BC
StructureCraft's New Shop
StructureCraft is excited to announce that in fall of 2017, we will start manufacturing Dowel Laminated Timber (DLT), the only All Wood mass timber product in North America in our new 50,000sqft facility in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
The new plant will be designed and built with a variety of mass timber and engineered wood products, including DLT, LSL, NLT and Glulam.
The new StructureCraft shop has been designed as a demountable structure, with modular wall and roof panels - this gives us flexibility in our location but also allows us to expand our facility easily in the future.
We believe there's a more efficient and effective way to construct the industrial buildings of the future using this method.
**UPDATE April 21** Construction is progressing rapidly. Our building superstructure install commenced on Monday, April 17, and we installed the entire building structure by Friday, April 21 - in just one week, all four walls and a roof are now up.
A seriously impressive feat for a 50,000sqft industrial building. Huge thanks to our entire crew and team working on site and in the office who pulled this off - we are looking forward to moving into our new home in August!
**UPDATE June 5** The roofing is now completed, skylights installed, and shop office framed and drywalled (see pics). The bracket systems for the in-shop cranes are also installed. The erection of the main office structure will be commencing tomorrow. Click here for more details.
**UPDATE August 3** The new office has been up for some time now; windows are in, and the office furniture is being set up. The machinery for the DLT line is currently being installed, and our whole team is looking forward with anticipation to seeing it installed and producing beautiful BC-wood DLT panels.
