Intelligent City opens first urban housing factory as world leader in applying robotics to construction

Intelligent City has begun building urban housing projects in the company’s new factory on River Road in North Delta after developing and commissioning its robotics technology to aid in providing breakthrough turn-key housing for developers, landowners, and housing operators. The opening of their factory was officiated by the BC Government officials and Brian Hawrysh, CEO of BC Wood.

The company is a leader in innovative urban housing, sustainability, building technology and design methodology, and has gained municipal approvals and broad government support for its mass timber building system and technology development.

Intelligent City’s co-founders Cindy Wilson and Oliver Lang, who have worked in architecture for 25 years, led the company with their vision since it was founded in 2008. Intelligent City’s mission is to empower people to live better urban lives.

“Today marks a very important milestone for Intelligent City. We are leading the housing industry through a product- and platform-based approach to address affordability, livability and climate change issues. We are now the first in the world to use advanced robotics to automatically assemble mass timber building systems that have been tested to meet the latest building code and net zero standards,” Oliver Lang says.
