Glulam is a demonstratively sustainable alternative to concrete and steel. It has much lower embodied energy than these, and, although of course glulam does entail more embodied energy than solid timber, the laminating process allows timber, a generally environmentally benign material, to be used for much longer spans, heavier loads and complex shapes.
Advantages to Glulam + LVL Beams
- Environmentally friendly materials that don’t need to be mined or manufactured as steel and cement does
- Flexibility in spans and sizes
- Different options of appearance can create the warm and comfortable look you would like
- A higher strength to width ratio than steel
