RMIT BUNDOORA TIMBER HUB

IMG_3554-copy

The recently completed RMIT Bundoora Timber Hub is one of the largest engineered timber structures in Australia and boasts 525mm x 525mm columns over 18m in height. The structure was fabricated and erected by Timber Imagineering and includes massive timber columns, beams, ProRafters and prefabricated floor panels that were craned into place.

The main structural challenge lay in the shear size of the six storey timber structure. Made from smaller laminations of LVL, the timber columns were fabricated in the shop to tight tolerances and a high level of quality control.

 

The roof structure is comprised of our custom ProRafter roof framing system,  which provided an easy and economical solution to the challenge of coordinating geometry, services and structure.

 

This project was fabricated and erected by Timber Imagineering. The result is a remarkable environment for the students to study or chill at RMIT Bundoora.
