Western Archrib has been a leader in the design, manufacture, and custom fabrication of glued-laminated structural wood systems since 1951. Our product line includes the manufacture of Douglas Fir Glulam, Spruce Pine Glulam, and Alaskan Yellow Cedar Glulam into beams, columns, and mass timber panels. We are certified to manufacture in accordance with the national standards of Canada, the United States, and Japan.
A revolution is underway in the building industry – and Structurlam, with over five decades of wood products innovation, is leading the way. We built our reputation founded in quality and customer satisfaction, and now are setting the standard for mass timber manufacturers across the continent. Five decades young and still going strong, Structurlam is igniting the mass timber revolution across North America.
Structurlam is a team of experts – with deep industry knowledge in two business verticals: construction and industrial. We seamlessly blend the science of wood with ingenuity in timber engineering and product application. We are recognized on a global stage for both our quality mass timber products and our ability to design, fabricate, and deliver system solutions to the most complex projects.
StructureCraft is an engineer-led construction firm specializing in timber and hybrid-timber structures; we have been engineering and building efficient, signature structures for architects, owners, and general contractors of North America and Asia for 20 years. We accomplish this by bringing the old-world tradition of Master-Craftsman to bear upon the new-world of high-tech construction. We are industry leaders in the “mass timber revolution” – answering the pressing need for increased quality and construction efficiency, at the same time reducing site erection time and risk.
For more than a century, we’ve been growing and harvesting trees to make products that improve lives in fundamental ways. Our forests provide habitat, carbon storage and recreational access. Our wood products are used to build homes where people raise their families. Our land provides for responsible development, conservation and renewable energy. What we make every day helps make life better for people all over the world.
Serving the residential, multi-family and light commercial markets, our Wood Products businesses manufacture a wide range of structural framing materials and provides seamless building solutions, from design to installation to support. These teams move fast, work smart and never stop pushing to be and stay number one in the industry.
LP Building Solutions
At LP, creating new solutions for building is who we are. Since we pioneered our first engineered wood product, we’ve been creating better products to fit the changing needs of the building industry.
From engineered wood panels and siding to outdoor building solutions and design software, our innovative products have combined strength, technology and durability.
And when we do it just right, we create entirely new solutions. Take our original and best-selling oriented strand board (OSB). We’ve incorporated strand technology into many of our building solutions, such as the LP® TopNotch® Sub-Flooring series, LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing, LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding, LP® SolidStart® products and LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing. On top of that, we’ve added technology to make certain products moisture resistant, flame retardant, and stronger than traditional lumber and plywood.
Today, LP is continuously working toward the future of building. We’re creating stronger, longer lasting and more innovative products while focusing on protecting the environment. We are committed to developing products engineered to perform and built to stand the test of time.

NRCan supports various programs including the Expanding Market Opportunities (EMO) program which provides funding to forest product associations, provinces and wood product research organizations to:
- increase Canada’s presence in national and international wood markets
- enhance knowledge of Canadian wood products among wood suppliers and their customers
- promote the use of Canadian wood in non-traditional construction such as mid-rise and non-residential buildings.
Its domestic markets project funding helps to:
- increase the use of wood in non-residential and mid-rise applications.
- educate designers, specifiers and architects about ways to incorporate Canadian wood products throughout the planning, designing and building phases.
Examples of domestic projects include:
- sharing technical information via tradeshows, conferences, design manuals, in-office training, webinars, seminars and tours.
- developing marketing and communication materials and market opportunity studies.
NRCan also funds domestic demonstration projects through the NRCan program Green Construction through Wood program (GCWood).
