Surrey Museum Expansion
DLT Roof Structure
The Surrey Museum has been expanded to better serve a diverse community in one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, creating an exemplary cultural space for both residents and visitors. Alongside, HCMA architects, Heatherbrae Builders, and Wicke Herfst Maver, we helped the City of Surrey to design and construct a forward-looking facility that is also deeply rooted in their heritage.
StructureCraft's role: Design, fabrication and installation of the dowel laminated timber for the roof structure. The DLT roof structure at Surrey Museum required a well-coordinated effort to create a smooth construction process of the DLT Roof Deck, both in shop and on site. StructureCraft Builders also provided the necessary dedicated project management and coordination with the general contractor, consultants, and sub-trades involved.
SCB has designed, fabricated and installed a considerable number of local and international timber slab structures in the past few years, including over a half-million square feet of NLT, CLT and GLT. The Surrey Museum was one of first structures in North America to have DLT, the first all wood mass timber panel.
Fast and Efficient DLT Panel Production
To allow for conduit runs, we created a chase in each DLT panel, by simply using shallower boards at the edge of each panel. We received the roofer in our fabrication shop to apply the warrantied roofing membrane, which not only acted as weather protection for the DLT panels, but also saved time and cost on site.
