Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility’s timber roof design was featured in the January/February 2017 issue of Construction Business magazine. The largest timber roof in North America it is constructed with over 30,000 square feet of glulam. We designed a place for people to gather and play by combining essential health, wellness, and community services underneath one roof.
The expansive timber roof links these program elements and responds to the individual requirements of each activity. Glulam was selected for its technical and aesthetic merits – the geometric complexity of the project required the use of a structural material that had the ability to be customized while creating a vibrant, welcoming community destination.
