Scope of Work: Beam Craft was awarded the scope of Mass Timber Installation as a subcontractor for PCL of Edmonton. The structural steel frame created a tray for the Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) roof panels to nest into which gave a very elegant finish with no visible connections on the underside. The CLT was supplied to site by Structurlam with all edge machining completed. Beam Craft carpenters executed a detailed layout of all concealed bolts and drilled panels prior to hoisting into place. Although the geometry is relatively simple, it was a challenging installation that made for some “learning opportunities”.
If you are designing hybrid structures such as this, we invite you to reach out to discuss interfacing connections, tolerances, fabrication, specifications, etc. before sending your job to construction!
