As well as promoting wellness and a sense of community through biophilic design elements, Techlam Glulaminated timber solutions save time and don’t harm the environment.
Glulam makes for a simple construction process throughout the project — especially on multi-storey structures, and its strength to weight ratio is better than steel and reinforced concrete.
Perfect for almost any situation, Glulam components are either prefabricated at Techlam’s manufacturing facility (the largest of its kind in New Zealand) before heading to site, or cut to specifications on site.
Glulam’s flexibility makes it easy to incorporate into designs to work with steel and concrete, or as a standalone engineered solution. Plus, with impressive fire ratings compared to most building products, glulam will be stronger for longer.
Techlam recently provided prefabricated members to a student accommodation project in Dunedin. Utilising engineered timber products throughout the design, this two-storey structure went together seamlessly on site. The result is an efficient, lightweight, and visually appealing structure.
Technical support and input is provided by Techlam throughout projects to make them as seamless as possible. With decades of proven experience, Techlam is engineered to work with you on your next project.
