EMILY CARR UNIVERSITY OF ART & DESIGN
Seagate Structures was contracted to install the mass timber components for the new Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC.
Three pop-up roofs (lanterns) used glulam beams to span between the steel frame which, in turn supported the 2x4 NLT panels above. Round glulam columns with steel connectors to hold a steel canopy on the second level. Finally, the feature butterfly canopy (south side of the building) comprised of 2x4 NLT panels was supported by both glulam beams and glulam columns.
All timber prefabrication was done by Western Archrib. Seagate Structures provided the installation expertise.
