Our Challenge:
This project specified tight delivery times and accurate pre-cutting and slotting of the curved timbers. All components had to be pre-assembled and checked for accuracy before being coated with two coats of stain and packed into containers for shipment.

The Techlam Solution:
Techlam supplied all structural laminated components pre-tested for fit and accuracy. Both stages of the project (consisting of the main auditorium and a large colonnade) were packed, shipped and installed on site. Set in a world class location, the finished project looks stunning and fits perfectly with its surroundings.

Products Used:

  1. Pre-Fabricated Glulam - While the complex pre-fabrication work was done at our facility in New Zealand, the beams were assembled on site by skilled local builders, in conjunction with Arrow International.
  2. Curved Beams - These beams create a rustic, tropical appearance that realises the architect’s vision.

“Techlam NZ supplied structural laminated beams into the CCCS in Apia, Samoa. This project was a 2 stage project consisting of the main auditorium and a large colonnade.”

“The project called for tight delivery times and accurate pre-cutting and slotting of the curved members. The team at Techlam performed well on this project, delivering the components on time and as specified. I enjoyed working with them and would not hesitate to recommend their company.”
