Overview

The 5,000 sq.ft. timber structure supports a glazed skylight system over the entrance to the new parkade for the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. The tilted and faceted pyramidal forms, complete with a 42' cantilever, are constructed of shaped LSL moment frames with hidden connectors and steel spacer pipes. We engineered pre-fabricated, pre-finished and erected all elements in this structure.
