This project was a perfect example of prefabrication.
Techlam were excited to be involved right from the very inception, and worked closely with the engineers and architects to provide the best solutions possible. This project involved detailed hidden connections and highly visual glulam members, and incorporated other engineered timber products throughout the structure.
The Techlam Solution
This completed project is truly stunning.
With a fully prefabricated truss, purlins & portal frames by Techlam, and prefab CLT elements by XLam the Hornby Working Mens club came to life. Collaboration with all stakeholders throughout this project is what made it a success. All teams worked hard to complete this project to the schedule. Prefabrication made this possible with an efficient & seamless process.
The central truss is over 18 meters long and was fully prefabricated in our plant. It was assembled with concealed epoxy dowel connections throughout. Shipped to site in one piece, ready to be installed.
The portal frames and purlins are all visual glulam product. They were prefabricated and supplied with the hardware ready to go. A great solution to save time and costs.
