Reinventing industrial buildings with all-timber, deconstructable manufacturing facility

StructureCraft, an engineer-led fabricator of innovative timber structures, reinvents the industrial building typology with its nearly 5,000-square-metre all-timber manufacturing facility.

  • All-timber design built showcases a range of wood products and building systems including glue-laminated timber (glulam), laminated strand lumber (LSL), and dowel-laminated timber (DLT).
  • Demonstrates a sustainable alternative to conventional concrete tilt-up and steel construction.
  • A demountable wood structure—panellized and screwed into place—makes it possible to take the building apart and extend it for future expansion.

Assembled as an all-timber kit-of-parts in less than a week

StructureCraft’s prefabricated facility, built from a simple kit-of-parts composed of glue-laminated timber (glulam) columns and beams, tall wood walls, and wood roof panels, was erected in just five days, demonstrating a cost-effective method of constructing an attractive industrial building. The facility includes a manufacturing plant for dowel-laminated timber (DLT), and open-concept offices where designers, engineers, estimators and fabricators work collaboratively on custom mass-timber structures, from concept and modelling to fabrication and installation.  

As a sustainable alternative to concrete tilt-up construction, its prefabricated wall and roof panels showcase the variety of cutting-edge mass-timber and engineered wood products that the facility itself designs and assembles for projects around the world. In addition to DLT, these include laminated strand lumber (LSL), nail-laminated timber (NLT) and glulam. 


Our team aimed to develop a signature structure that would expand on what’s possible with wood. Not only was a cost-effective industrial building quickly and efficiently built, but this project showcases the advantages of building with engineered wood for the industrial buildings of tomorrow.
