A resurgence in timber construction and engineered wood is now underway. Architects are inspired and enjoy the challenges of creating new and unique structures made of mass timbers and engineered wood. The province of Quebec is at the forefront and is a world lead in mass timber construction. Quebec is a world leader in the manufacturing of glulam beams and cross-laminated timbers. Experience, knowledge, and technology are the reasons why mass timber from Quebec should be trusted and considered by architects for their projects. Two Quebec companies stand out in the design of residential and commercial buildings in mass timber and are exporting their knowledge and experience to the US. They are Nordic Structures and Art Massif. The architectural technology developed by these two companies has attracted the attention of several large-scale projects, specifically with organizations working in the field of education.
