ABOUT DAVE GARDNER

Dave Gardner has spent most of his adult life working with heavy timber – working and managing companies as a log builder and timber framer and now as a Heavy Timber Specialist with Structurlam. Dave has led and participated in several heavy timber related associations – International Log Builders Association, BC Log and Timber Building Industry Association and BC Wood Specialties as well as Alberta WW Steering Committee. Dave has enjoyed working closely with introducing innovations in the heavy timber sector. Fifteen years ago, Dave was instrumental in implementing an innovative vacuum kiln drying technology in the log building sector. That technology remains as the only North American installation although it has much wider acceptance in Europe. CLT technology fits the same innovative profile.
