WEBINAR – Glued Laminated Timber – An Innovative and Versatile Engineered Wood Product

December 11, 2013 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm




Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern

This seminar will showcase the versatility of glued laminated timber (glulam), demonstrating how it has been used to solve a variety of design challenges—from 100-foot clear span beams to complex reverse curved arches to 500-foot clear span space frames. Learn how glulam has evolved over 100 years of use and how continued advances have given it unparalleled performance. Topics will include detailing and connection design for glulam-framed structures, fire safety characteristics, and sustainability.
