Single span & seamless

Our challenge
To design and manufacture the longest free spanning mass timber beams in Australasia, resulting in a floating effect for an area containing a 25m heated pool. There were many challenges along the way, with tight deadlines to work to. Situated within the City of Sydney’s new Green Square precinct, this development is now complete.

The Techlam solution
Techlam worked with the client to find a solution for concealed splice joints, incorporating complex connections to create one seamless 36.43m clearspan beam. Paired with many other innovative products, these beams are stunning and fit the brief of the client. A total of 76 Tonne of carbon was sequestered by using glulam in this structure.
