Innovative Timber, another advocate, built its first structure using the CLT panel material for a local business in Whitefish in the US last year.

At the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, a Bioenergy Research and Demonstration Project is now under way. It is being built with CLT walls and roof with a concrete foundation.

When completed, the 1885m2 building will house biomass gasification equipment to produce electricity and steam for the UBC campus.
