Glulam is short for glued laminated wood. It is an environmentally friendly product that can be used instead of steel or concrete, both of which take far more energy to produce and are less energy efficient in use.
The high strength to weight ratio allows for savings to be made on foundations, transport and erection. Glulam is also extremely resistant to chemical attack and the natural appearance makes a structure look good without cladding.
Uses include roof, lintel and floor beams, columns, rafters, etc.
Here are just a few photos of our work with this product. N.B. It’s just the beams
that are glulam.
