The striking wavelike structure of the roof construction is what makes this building, designed to be a Marketplace hall, remarkable. A total of approximately 300 m³ of glued laminated timber, including 23.5 meter long curved glulam beams with pre-installed steel connections and surface finish were delivered to Quebec City, Canada. A further highlight was that the curved beams were shipped to Canada by "break bulk", requiring careful packaging measures to ensure a safe and undamaged transport.
