The Material: Glued laminated timber, also called glulam, is a type of structural engineered wood product constituted by layers of dimensional lumber bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant structural adhesives. Glulam houses are antipodes of the frame construction ones. First of all they are extremely strong and heavy due to its timber production process.

Glulam timber production
