Concord Pacific, a high-end real estate developer, needed a 4,000 square foot portable display pavilion designed and built to support the marketing of suites in a series of high-rise towers. And the building had to be completed, on site in under tow months.

StructureCraft took the job, agreeing to design and deliver the exposed architectural timber structure for a fixed price.

Working with fully committed architects, design ideas were rapidly detailed and approved, with shop personnel kept closely in the loop. The structure consists of custom prefabricated timber floor panels installed over a crawl space, and a glass-enclosed superstructure made of exposed Parallam columns, braces, and king-post trusses, fitted in the shop with carefully detailed steel hardware and assembled on site as a kit-of-parts. Three inch steel decking spans between the roof trusses. The building is designed to easily break apart into three sections for transportability by truck to future sites.

The advantages of design-build do not have to compromise the quality of fine workmanship: this refined kit-of-parts was designed, fabricated and erected, ready for finishing, in just over 6 weeks. The building has since been relocated twice, with no damage or glass breakage.
