Log & Timber Connections had the great opportunity to provide Mark Zaturecky of Canadian Sustainable Timber Innovations samples of our structural wood screws to help complete a demo of iHouse Project built from CLT (Cross Laminated Timber). The iHouse Project was designed by Michael Katz MAIBC to be a product with great potential that would be an ultra-compact, mass-produced house, built out of wood and selling for a fraction of the cost of present-day housing.

Gary Pavlicek of EDR Limited used his thoughtful imagination and was able to compress separated arched laminated beams. Using a 30 Ton Jacks for an accumulative force of 360 TON, short cuts of steel beams, and a rods he was able to pull the laminate together and then with Full Thread 8 x 580 and 480's he was able to structurally bind the laminate together and restore.
Joe Miller with Fire Tower Engineered Timber assisted with the engineering stating "To be honest, this didn't take that much effort, to make work. The engineering (and failure mechanism) was pretty obvious. Rather than use the original repair by the original engineer (which was structurally sufficient, and, would have worked), which would have required drilling a lot of holes, and, doing a lot of epoxy work and the rest, by using screws, we were able to save a lot of time, and, not have to weaken the cross-section by drilling in all of the holes for epoxied in place rods.
So, saved time, effort, money, and, didn't create any additional damage / harm.
In May 2007 the Vancouver City Council approved major structural upgrades to the building located at 1122 SW Marine Drive and approved the appointment of Read Jones Christoffersen, (Vancouver, BC), as Consultant to prepare tender documents and provide project management support to re-mediate the structural deficiencies of the existing columns and beams. With technical support from UBC Wood Science,the structural engineers proposed that the project repairs would use the technology of Fully Threaded Screws to reinforce severely cracked beams to return the beams back to its structural integrity.
PAX Construction, (Burnaby, B.C.), was chosen to install Fully Threaded Screws 5/16 x 23” at predesignated locations along the beams at a 45 degree angles. PAX Construction installed over 7000 Fully Thread Screws supplied by Log & Timber Connections.
