Royal Botanical Gardens Rock Garden Visitor Centre

Model shadow Change me

The new Royal Botanical Gardens Rock Garden Visitor Centre, designed to hold up to 150 patrons for weddings and other special occasions, features a glue laminated timber roof system inspired by the natural form of a leaf. The timber roof is supported on architecturally exposed hollow structural section (HSS) columns fitted with CAST CONNEX® Universal Pin Connectors™ + Architectural Tapers™. The connectors cause the columns to have a slenderer appearance.
