Oct. 2, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – On October 2nd, 2019, sustainable home builder Adera Development Corporations celebrates its 50th year of building innovative and superior quality wood homes for future generations.

As highly regarded industry leaders through their use of cross-laminated timber (CLT), Adera has demonstrated their expertise by trademarking a new health-conscious building material called SmartWoodTM. Inspired by Adera’s unwavering commitment to innovation, this method of construction is faster, sustainably responsible, prevents heat loss, increases fire safety rating, and is seismically resilient.

“50 years of experience has led us to incorporate new technologies to better the homes we build for our customers,” says Eric Andreasen, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Adera Development. “We’ve created SmartWoodTM as a way to build stronger, healthier homes for British Columbians in an environmentally conscious manner for generations to come. SmartWoodTM is the combination of Mass Timber, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels, Adera’s QuietHomeTM system, and our Sustainable practices. The result is a superior method of building residential multi-family homes.”

Adera is integrating the new SmartwoodTM technology into two of their new projects coming to market this year, Duet in West Coquitlam and CREST in North Vancouver. The attached picture is the first CLT panels flying into position and being installed at CREST last Friday. This run of panels is the start of more than 250 homes that will incorporate the mass timber SmartWoodTM technology. As a result, Adera will be constructing the most residential mass timber homes in North America. Adera will be starting a number of other projects that will take the number of residential homes using SmartWoodTM to nearly 500.
