Glulam beam cost

Glulam beam cost

Could anyone shed some light for me on the approximate cost for a 90 foot span glulam beam, with about 11" wide x 66" deep?

RE: Glulam beam cost

Here's a crazy thought: call a supplier.

RE: Glulam beam cost

For a GLB that size delivery is also a factor.

As EOR's we should take the responsibility to design our structures to support the components we allow in our design per that industry standards.

And picking it will be no minor chore..

RE: Glulam beam cost

That's almost exactly the size of 2 beams that I put into a building 25 years ago. I had no idea of the cost then & even if I did it would be irrelevant now. The glulam supplier provided engineering, shop drawings, and pricing for the whole package together. How much are the tires on your new car?

RE: Glulam beam cost

That's only 9,072 BF and that piece would be 15,963 pounds in Southern Pine. Of course, standard industry width is 10 3/4" not 11". We've made a single piece up to 45,000 pounds. Fun moving that thing around in the factory!

Yes, get in touch with several manufacturers. Contact American Istitute of Timber Construction (AITC) for a list of manufacturers in USA. I can't imagine you need just one stick like this. Is there an entire roof system?
