North Surrey Sport & Ice Complex
Long Span Roof Structures
StructureCraft was selected as the partner for this exciting local project, after proposing a turnkey, value engineered solution in late 2017. We worked alongside Francl Architecture, Bogdonov Pao, and Lark Group to design and build the hybrid timber/steel roof structures for the three rinks in North Surrey.
As part of our original proposal, we suggested pre-fabricated wood roof panels as an alternate to deep metal deck. These panels not only gave the team 30-40% costs savings, but significant overall schedule savings.
Long-span hybrid timber/steel trusses span up to 140' to form the main roof support. The king-posted trusses consist of Glulam top chord, steel rod tension chord and HSS web members. Our engineers drove engineering optimization on the truss with the use of parametric software to significantly reduce truss weight, causing savings in material, labour and craneage.
We provided the structural engineering design, 3D design and shop drawings, pre-fabrication and installation of the trusses and roof panels, along with the necessary dedicated project management.
