COVID-19 Update: What we’re doing to keep you and our community safe

March 27, 2020News

Amid these uncertain times, we hope that you and your families are safe and healthy. Despite this unprecedented event, we want to ensure that Structurlam is able to create safe workplaces so that we can continue to operate as a North American leader in mass timber building products. With consideration for the COVID-19 outbreak and the acute sensitivities of this issue, we want to assure you that Structurlam is here for you, and we greatly appreciate the support we have seen from our customers.

As with many across North America, the Structurlam leadership team is monitoring the instructions from both the provincial and federal governments closely. Structurlam’s operations will continue to respect all requirements put forward by WorkSafe BC and our provincial and federal health authorities. Our responsibility, and priority, is to provide our people with a safe work environment so that they can continue to deliver on their promises to you.

We have asked staff who are able to work remotely to stay at home during this time. On Friday, March 20th, WorkSafe BC confirmed that our facilities are both safe and compliant for our employees with roles that require them to be in our manufacturing plant. On March 26th, 2020, the Province of British Columbia announced that manufacturing businesses like Structurlam are considered essential services in British Columbia at this time. Essential services are those daily services essential to preserving life, health, public safety and basic societal functioning. They are the services British Columbians come to rely on in their daily lives. We will continue to monitor all directives to ensure we remain compliant.

With that said, at this time, we are continuing to fulfill your orders to ensure that your plans to create beautiful structures that people can live and work in can move forward.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued trust in Structurlam. Please know that our lines of communication remain open and we invite you to call us as we are open for business.

CEO of Structurlam
