Overview

This 19,000 sq. ft. 3D timber structure is constructed of Parallam space trusses, beams, rafters, struts and turned support columns. All members were pre-fabricated in the shop along with the insulated structural roof panels and the acoustically-insulated, finished ceiling panels. We erected and set the geometry of the great part of the roof by pre-assembling large hybrid wood-steel trusses on the ground, and fitting them rapidly into place.
