A New StructureCraft Facility - Abbotsford, BC
Structurecraft's New Shop
StructureCraft is excited to announce that it has started 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 facility, a model of engineering efficiency, sets a new standard in industrial building design with wood.
Prefabricated wall and roof panels are designed with a variety of mass timber and engineered wood products, including DLT, LSL, NLT, and Glulam. To demonstrate the flexibility of mass wood in industrial buildings, StructureCraft designed the entire building as a demountable structure, providing flexibility to expand or move the facility entirely to a new location.
We believe there's a more efficient and effective way to construct the industrial buildings of the future using this method.
The new facility was designed to explore what could be possible using wood for a simple industrial building with a tight budget. That exploration, while not simple during the design phase, has created a prototype which proves that modern industrial buildings may be created cost-effectively, and attractively, using wood.
The erection of the timber superstructure commenced on a Monday, and our crew had the entire building installed by that same Friday.
In just one week, all four walls and a 40,000sqft roof were installed.
Our team aimed to develop a signature structure and to expand what’s possible with wood from fast installation to cost effectiveness. The erection of the timber superstructure commenced on a Monday, and our crew had the entire building installed by that same Friday. In just one week, all four walls and a 40,000sqft roof are now up
