Stromlo ACT 2611



Whilst common throughout Europe and other parts of the world, large timber framed structures are still a rarity in Australia. The glue laminated timber in this job will provide a connection between the building and the natural landscape of the Stromlo Forrest Park.

The roofing structure is composed of 47 metre main beams, spaced with 7 metre rafters. The entire structure is supported by tree-shaped engineered connections made of tapered glulam.

Rubner provided technical advise during design fase, the entire engineering of all the glulam as well as the steel connections and base. 100% of the materials were manufactured in Bressanone, Italy.
