Glulam Installation

We have a number of expert installation teams and work throughout the UK. We have installed our glulam in Cornwall, London, the Home Counties, the Midlands, Wales, Scotland and even on the Scottish Isles. We have experience of working at an industrial scale and right down to a single room, household extension. We have worked in most of the UK’s major international airports as well as commercial settings and exhibition venues.

We supply much of our glulam as part of prefabricated structures, with all of the joinery work completed within our workshop. Buildings, whatever the scale are supplied in kit form – all of the columns, trusses and bracing members are numbered and marked. Thereafter, collated on-site and installed in a predetermined sequence.

Depending on the complexity of the project and the needs of our customers. We can visit a site, compose method statements, risk assessments and develop safe working systems for particularly difficult installations. Our staff are trained to work with cranes, scissor lifts, scaffolding and carry the CITB recognised CSCS cards, IPAF, slinger signaller and AP certifications.

Off-site construction

To ensure all the component parts of each project fit together correctly we often ‘dry fit’ a project within our workshop. The size of our premises enables us to check and adjust (where necessary) every component part prior to it being disassembled and packaged for transportation to site. Where speed of construction and tight schedules are an issue this pre-check is an invaluable part of our installation process.

If you’re considering using glulam for a project, we’re happy to answer any of your questions, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
