These custom fabricated timber trusses form the center piece of the Guildford Aquatic Center. These ~27m long trusses (including 4m sections of roof) were prefabricated, and fully finished offsite which allowed for a several weeks schedule saving as compared with a traditional steel roof. Scope included the specialty design of the hybrid LSL/Glulam trusses, their connections to base building and design of built-up plywood roof structure.
