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.

Throughout the process of working with Structurlam we've been very satisfied with the service they've provided and the performance of the CLT. We've also been pleased that we were able to stay well ahead of schedule.
