The project consisted of seven exposed bolted Glulam trusses. The trusses are 51’-6” span scissor configuration with 8:12 roof pitch and 3:12 bottom chord pitch. They were designed with 6-3/4 x 18” chords and 6-3/4 x 12” webs, bolted with ¾” bolts and 4” diameter shear plates, with steel side plates both sides.
Each truss is designed to carry a 68,000 pound point load at the ridge, plus 290 PLF snow load along the top chords, resulting in chord forces of almost 130,000 pounds!
Built in 2013.
Trusses were built by Bojarsky Inc., Portland, OR (Tony Bojarsky)
