Aesthetic, resilient and incredibly versatile

The trend in recent years towards green construction has induced architects and engineers to use timber – the natural building material – as the most salient architectural element in a very wide range of building projects.

The fascination of glulam lies in the flexibility of the timber to be formed into almost any shape while maintaining its high load-bearing capacity. The elements made of planed, parallel-glued boards are distinguished by outstanding dimensional stability, efficiency and versatility. The combination of straight, curved and cambered constructional elements in combination with other wooden materials allows architects virtually unlimited freedom of design.
