After developing and commissioning its robotics technology at its new company factory in North Delta, B.C., Intelligent City, a leader in innovative urban housing, sustainability, building technology and design methodology, has begun building urban housing projects. The company is currently working on project totaling 2880 homes in Canada and 1400 homes in the U.S., many of which are supported by BC Wood. Intelligent City is focused on the construction of mid-to-high-rise urban housing as well as commercial buildings through the convergence of mass timber, design engineering, automated manufacturing, and proprietary software.
Intelligent City’s co-founders Cindy Wilson and Oliver Lang, who have worked in architecture for 25 years, led the company with their vision since it was founded in 2008. Intelligent City’s mission is to empower people to live better urban lives.
“Today marks a very important milestone for Intelligent City. We are leading the housing industry through a product- and platform-based approach to address affordability, livability, and climate change issues. We are now the first in the world to use advanced robotics to automatically assemble mass timber building systems that have been tested to meet the latest building code and net zero standards,” Oliver Lang says.
Recently, Intelligent City won the Breakthrough Energy Solutions Canada competition, plus the company has received financial support from a variety of funding programs in Canada. The BC Government supported Intelligent City’s business with $460,000 in funding from the Clean BC Building Innovation Fund.
