Single span & seamless:

Our challenge:
To design and manufacture the longest free spanning mass timber beams in Australasia, resulting in a floating effect for an area containing a 25m heated pool. There were many challenges along the way, with tight deadlines to work to. Situated within the City of Sydney’s new Green Square precinct, this development is due to finish end of 2020

The Techlam solution:
Techlam worked with the client to find a solution for concealed splice joints, incorporating complex connections to create one seamless 36.43m clearspan beam. Paired with many other innovative products, these beams are stunning and fit the brief of the client.

Products Used:

  • Glulaminated Visual Appearance Grades - Visual Glulam roof beams, totalling a span of 36m each.
