Looking inside a mass timber manufacturing operation

3 April 2022

This video discusses mass timber manufacturing and shows an advanced mass timber factory in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada (Element5). Building components are modelled using 3D modelling software and then translated into drawings for the factory. Factory components are built on advanced assembly lines and robotically machined to precision.

Take a “walk” through the new factory and learn about the cross-laminated timber manufacturing process on this virtual tour conducted by their VP of Manufacturing Engineering, Chris Latour. Special thanks to the Wood Manufacturing Cluster of Ontario for recording the tour.
