Owners and employees of New Energy Works owe a lot to the heavy winter snowfall of 2015.
Had it not caused the heartbreaking collapse of their 15,000-square-foot wood-working warehouse in Shortsville, they might not have designed and built New York state’s first complete cross laminated timber (CLT) building at the company’s main campus in Farmington.
Tomorrowland is what employees of the 30-year-old company call the new 21,000-square-foot structure, a rich and aromatic hybrid of mass timber, heavy timber and CLTs.
Industry experts got a closer look Friday as the company hosted Building Energy Pro Tours, a program of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association. They poked into corners, handled new materials and inspected joinery and hardware.
