Wood Is the New Steel

In Okanagan Falls, BC, between a leafy vineyard and a former sawmill, stands the newly expanded factory of Structurlam Wood Products. In preparation for North America’s next building boom, the plant has been transformed into a state-of-the-art factory for making glulam and cross-laminated timber (CLT), the materials that make timber-frame high-rises a viable building option.
