After becoming Canada’s newest cross laminated timber (CLT) manufacturer in 2017, Element5 is set to boost operations at its current mass timber production facility in Ripon, Quebec.
This past week, Rhomberg Holding Group founder and CEO Hubert Rhomberg presented the keynote at the Wood Design & Construction Solutions Conference in Vancouver, BC. His talk, Construction in the 21st Century – Rethinking the Design and Construction Process to Enhance Performance and Reduce Impact, touched on a topic that lies at the very heart of what we’re doing here at Element5.
In the push towards carbon neutrality, mass timber structures provide significant advantages over steel and concrete because of the carbon sequestration benefits realized in the formation of wood.
Element5 Co. is pleased to announce its plans for a full-scale CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) manufacturing plant to open in Eastern Canada in late 2017.
