CHIBOUGAMAU, Quebec – The new terminal at Chibougamau-Chapais Airport showcases high-performance engineered wood products such as glulam and cross-laminated timber (CLT) structural slabs made with black spruce wood locally sourced from the area’s boreal forest.
The site aims to inspire and drive the construction industry towards a more sustainable and efficient future through greater use of engineered timber.
A new building design using CLT is designed to provide housing while reducing carbon emissions. In a move intended to bring down CO2 emissions while streamlining the construction of cost-effective urban housing, Generate, an AEC technology company, assembled a coalition of industry leaders to develop the Tallhouse, an adaptable catalog of integrated design systems for carbon-conscious, high-density urban housing, focused on the structural use of mass timber.
Kalesnikoff has announced new mass timber projects at three Canadian schools in Ontario and British Columbia.
Timber products have the potential to turn buildings into carbon sinks.
It will reportedly be the largest CLT production plant in North America with new technology provided by USNR.
ST. THOMAS, Ontario – Element5 plans to construct Ontario’s first cross laminated timber (CLT) plant in St. Thomas. The operation is scheduled to open in December 2020.
