Construction of the Lumberton sawmill continues. This series of up-to-date photos show buildings across the footprint are starting to take shape.

Some of the updates for this month include:

  • Site preparation (excluding utilities) is about 98% completed, including earthwork and soil cement.
  • Concrete is moving forward on schedule with some delays due to weather
  • Significant progress has been made on the process of erecting the lumber warehouse and sorter buildings. Roofing has started on the finished lumber warehouse and the sorter building. Siding will be the next item to go up.
