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.

Project Overview

StructureCraft's new manufacturing facility demonstrates the possibilities for using a wood superstructure to construct an industrial building. Using engineered wood in prefabricated wall and roof panels, the building was erected in just five days.

Wood Use

StructureCraft used much of their own engineered wood products, manufactured and/or fabricated at their former plant in Delta for this project. Glulam beams and columns, supplied by others, form the structural frame of the new facility, and special architectural quality nail laminated timber (NLT) panels were used for the roof of the office portion of the building. They also used plywood sheathed NLT panels for the primary shear walls.
