In 2016, the Town of Radium, BC initiated a planning process for construction of a new community hall.
A ‘Wood First’ bylaw and policy was adopted with the project maximising use of locally derived forest products. The Concept Design was created by Urban Arts Architecture and Design.
In early 2017 the Town of Radium invited contractors from the region to explore ideas for the type of wood products to be used in the facility. The super structure with spans up to 11.5m was to be Glulam. We proposed Stacked DLT for the ceiling panels and roof overhangs due to its innovation, our European expertise in its production and installation and its modern clean lines. We felt Stacked DLT would be an ideal fit for the modern design of the building and as a public space 100% wood, non-glued DLT is a healthy and sustainable material. We were delighted to be chosen to supply and install the Glulam super structure, the Stacked DLT ceiling panels and the roof overhangs. Our part of the project was completed in late 2017. The Radium Community Hall and Library opened its’ doors to the public in August 2018.
