Six-Star Luxury

Our Challenge
For this six-star luxury lodge where no detail is too small to be noticed, our client was looking for a high quality timber to form the exposed truss and rafter work. The stability required to keep the consistency of the band-sawn appearance was paramount.

Our Solution
Techlam glulam products were specified for their dependable quality. We worked with the construction company and other subcontractors to supply a competitive package, with minimal waste due to our efficient manufacturing.

Products Used

Glulam Truss

A premium appearance grade truss with a high quality band sawn finish was supplied - creating a stunning visual feature in keeping with the Resort’s overall feel.



The quality rafter beams were supplied finished, ready for the builders to assemble on site. Our ability to deliver quickly helped with the overall construction timeframe.
