More than 65 CLT factories have been built worldwide in a little over a decade with 15 new units on the way, according to Schickhofer, who receives a steady flow of global investors visiting his workshop, including from Softbank-backed Katerra Corp.

“I’ve never seen anything in my 40-year career that has generated this much interest,” said Katerra’s  Craig Curtis, an architect and one of the design chiefs at the Menlo Park, California company, which imported Schickhofer’s technology to build North America’s biggest CLT plant last year.
