We also had long discussions on the positions/use of the glulams (glued laminated beams) since they are really visual additions everywhere they go. We agreed with the architects that we can work out the use of the beams to minimize waste and provide strength where it's needed as well as the visual accents they were intended to provide. This is a win-win situation sinve that means we don't have to buy additional glulams (which is an expensive proposition and takes quite a long time for delivery).
