Did you know that the first five-storey wood frame building in B.C. was built in Enderby and assembled in Kamloops?

North Valley Frameworks just completed the first five-storey wood structures built under the Wood First Act.

The project is made up of two storeys of concrete structure and five storeys of wood framing. It houses a 20,000-square-foot public library and more than 100 residential units. North Valley Frameworks completed this project in December 2010.

The company has created a process to decrease the on-site labour burden of assembling wood structures by producing 30 to 35 per cent of the project off-site.

“Our experienced staff, in-house CAD designers equipped with state-of-the-art CNC software and 10,000-square-foot facility can handle residential and complex multi-unit projects with ease,” said Mark Ibbetson, North Valley president and a member of the Southern Interior Construction Association.

“Our own trucking service ensures that our product is delivered on time. The North Valley Frameworks on-site crew has more than 50 years combined experience to make a project of any size a success.”
