GETTING THE JOB DONE FOR GLENALMOND TIMBER

 

Of the many construction sector projects EMF has been involved in, none have matched the scale of complexity and speed of production required for a commission earlier this year from timber building specialist Glenalmond Timber.

Highly regarded in the construction sector for supply to the timber frame industry and for its high performance timber engineered products, Perthshire-based Glenalmond, approached EMF after it won a prestigious contract to build a four-storey glulam showcase office and community centre as part of a mixed use regeneration project on the 24-acre Mayfield site next to Manchester’s Piccadilly railway station.

Glulams (large timber beams) were chosen to form the key structural and aesthetic element of the complex, together with a fabricated mild steel bracket for anchoring and bolting the beams together.
