Wednesday, the massive glulam beams were chainsawed to length and moved to Spearhead, is a multi-faceted, value-added manufacturing company specializing in the design and fabrication of architectural timber and steel.

The manufacturing facility is located on the west arm of Kootenay Lake at 12-Mile on the North Shore.

Sheep Creek Crane Services hoisted the beams onto Maglio Industries flat deck truck for recycling use.
