Post & Beam buildings have a very long tradition over most of Central Europe.
A sturdy timber frame filled in with Mud brick, Brick, Straw Bale or Aerated Concrete withstands centuries in the harshest climate.
This traditional construction method offers itself to many modern design options.
Todays machinery allows to revive beautiful old building techniques like wooden pegged Mortise and Tenon joints, Dovetail connectors as well as curved glulam beams of huge dimensions.
¨ We are able to supply traditional and modern Glulam post and beam frames to any design & size.
¨ We can supply the Glulam structure for small extensions, whole domestic buildings up to massive commercial buildings with big spans like halls, concert halls, arenas in any shape or size.
¨ The Glulam frame will be precision manufactured in Germany and delivered collapsed.
¨ Any Glulam timber size is possible . 1 & 1/2 or 2 story buildings as well as community halls are most economical and beautiful to look at compared to big steel structures otherwise used.
¨ Glue laminated (and dried to around 12% moisture content) timbers ensure that only minimal shrinking and cracking occurs after machining. Every finished piece is numbered and detailed plans tell where they go. This makes assembly and erecting of the frame straight forward and quick.
¨ Whatever your design: This building method gives you a structure and a roof fast.
¨ Filling in the frame and building inside partitions can then be done sheltered and at any pace.
Due to the big timber sizes used a post & beam frame will:
Ş withstand a bushfire much better than a conventional stud home or steel framed hall.
Ş withstands earthquakes & cyclones much better than masonry walls / steel structures on their own.
