Aanesland Limtre has secured a major contract for the supply of glued laminated timber for the expansion of Oslo Airport’s terminal at Gardermoen. The contract involves the supply of glued laminated timber for the spectacular roof in the new central building. The roof of the new arrivals and departure hall will have 14 Glulam beams, 91 metres in length, as the main load bearing construction.
The Glulam beams will be connected as seven pairs. In addition, 84 secondary beams of 15 metres span will be installed. The roof area will be fully 12 000 square metres and the roof design will be similar to the one in the old central hall at the airport.
The work will commence in the summer of 2012 and will be completed in 2017.
