The Seagate Insider – Volume 4

by Nov 10, 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 modeling, CNC prefabrication, just in time logistics and precision installations are some of the 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 Seagate’s Next Level Prefab facility capabilities;
  • 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.
