The Seagate Insider –  Volume 1

by May 16, 2017The Seagate Insider0 comments

There is a revolution beginning in how we build our cities.

Mass timber combined with digital prefabrication is providing lighter, stronger, more precise structures that are built faster, quieter, smarter and safer.

Material optimization, Comprehensive 3D modelling, CNC prefabrication, just in time logistics and precision installations are the five key success criteria that are driving the revolution.

We are very excited about this smarter way to build and are dedicating our efforts to help develop these five success criteria and keep the revolution moving forward.

Come join us.

What we’ve been up to

We’ve been busy working at our business, and we’ve been busy working on our business. Read below to check out some of the current projects.

Our major initiatives are currently:

  • developing new project opportunities in Canada and the US;
  • seeking new partnerships with others to develop new mass timber solutions; and
  • developing some definitive mass timber products that make it easier for developers to take their project from concept to completion.

If any of this sounds like something you are interested in, get in touch!

Current Work

Currently, we are proud to be focusing our mass timber efforts at the Adera’s six story multifamily development at UBC in Vancouver, among others. Virtuoso is the first multi family residential project in North America to make extensive use of cross laminated timber (CLT) The project features CLT for all the floors, roofs, balconies and elevator shaft.

Content, Content, Content

Sure, you know we’re excited, but we want you to be excited too! We’ve been working hard on designing content to inform and educate the many advantages of building with mass timber and to provide information on how to best get from concept to completion on your mass timber project. If you haven’t read it yet, check out the Brock Commons Tallwood House: Construction Overview.

If you can’t get enough, stay tuned to our website as we bring you more.


Complexity vs Simplicity

From time to time we will be writing articles that tell stories about how building with mass timber is changing our concepts of how things can be done. Stories from the front lines of the revolution.
