Michael Smith Laboratories, UBC

The uniquely curved glulam arches at the Michael Smith Laboratories reflect the innovation being achieved by the biotechnology lab. The glulam arches were manufactured from one of kind Douglas-fir trees. Precision 3D CAD software that interacts with computer-driven machinery was used to ensure flawless beams, that were then trial fitted prior to shipping. Seamless connectors create smooth lines while clear adhesive and stain maintain the warmth of natural wood, offset by shining steel and glass.

I just wanted to write and let you know our beams are installed and beautiful, your precision on the material of this size and bracket work is phenomenal... It made the installation quick and easy.
