The Somerville Secondary College Trade Training Centre features 28 Glulam portal frames and rafters spanning 17m providing the main structural system for the open concept technical education space. Timber Imagineering not only prefabricated and erected the timber structure, but also assisted in the detail design to create the featured connections between the primary beams and columns. The steel and timber structure was modeled in 3D and extracted into shop drawings to ensure that the elements joined seamlessly on site.
In addition to the primary structure, Timber Imagineering prefabricated the external canopy structure to help facilitate a turnkey solution for the timber elements, thus simplifying the construction.
With innovative design and detailing in mind, the Somerville Secondary College Trade Training Centre acts as the perfect example of how timber allows beauty to go hand in hand with structural efficiency.
