Ambleside Galleria Canopy

Project Description

In collaboration with the architect, the mass timber supplier engineered and built the hybrid timber canopy structure at the Grosvenor Ambleside development in West Vancouver, BC. Dowco’s skilled 3D modelling and detailing team produced the layout and detail drawings from sketches supplied by the mass timber supplier for steel, glulam and hardware associated with the canopy. The canopy structure spans between the two new residential buildings, providing cover for residents and visitors walking the galleria. The structure includes 22 timber-and-steel trusses (prefabricated in the shop with glulam top chords, painted steel kingposts and stainless steel cables), painted steel supports (one side fixed, one sliding) and the glazing package (consisting of parallelogram lites of laminated tempered frit glass on painted steel purlins).
