Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) : A beautiful solution

Laminated Veneer Lumber is a tried and true structural product that we have been using for beams for years. Now, with the onset of tall timber buildings it is an elegant alternative for mass timber construction. Thin strips of timber are glued together to create a large panel that can be a very strong complete floor.

The Canadian group Brisco Manufacturing have created a sweet model of how the components are put together (proud owner in the background).  Because the finished product is so attractive, it could be a finished ceiling, wall, column, beam or floor (or all five!).

Architects will also love the leanness of the floor assembly, giving opportunity for greater floor to ceiling heights. Clients and home buyers will love that too.
