Use of laminated veneer lumber - or LVL - from Nelson Pine Industries will be integral to the structure. Around 440m3of locally-resourced timber has gone into the project. The LVL portal legs are cantilevered to provide a lateral bracing system that allows for unobstructed clear open spaces internally. Read more
