The earlier stages of this project were supplied by another provider and there were many issues with poor connections and substandard detailing. This caused significant delays in the erection of the first, smaller structure. Techlam was involved to remedy existing work and progress the next phase of the build.
The Techlam solution
Working with the project managers, we identified the main issues and together decided that the best course of action would be to pre-assemble the entire structure in our plant before dis-assembling it and packing for delivery. This enabled all knife plates and hardware to be checked and tested for correct fit before being delivered to site.
This project utilised Techlam’s standard product range of visual appearance glulam portal frames, which have a high fire rating and are low maintenance, especially in corrosive environments.
A complex pergola structure was pre-fabricated at our plant before being assembled on site. The finished structure complements the stonework and the stunning Queenstown environment.
