About This Project
ISL was retained by Structurlam for Specialty Engineering for a Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) / Glulam structure in a popular park in Calgary, AB. The project scope included verification of CLT panels for design criteria, design of all glulam to glulam, glulam to steel, and glulam to CLT connections. Analysis and design of reinforcement for a large pitched-tapered beam. The Engineer of Record provided internal beam forces to allow for our design of the beam reinforcing. Our high comfort level and expertise in technical issues in heavy timber was relied on by the Engineer of Record to perform this delegated design service.
ISL worked closely with Structurlam to ensure the product specified was a cost-effective option and readily available to meet the project schedule. ISL’s connection detailing worked in concert with Structurlam’s modeling process to ensure connection designs met intricacies of geometry and could be communicated to the fabricator as well as the contractor on site
