  • Gallery Glulam +

    The Galeri Glulam project is built on a piece of 4.9 acres of land owned by Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB) within a strategic location in the middle main high along Jalan Tampoi, Johor. This project was recognized by a Malaysia Book of Records on 15 March 2002 as the first completed building use glue-laminated timber (Glulam) as the load bearing structure which exceed 80% usage of wood to complement the design concept of the glulam iconic building. This building was officiated by YAB Tan Sri Dato’ Muhyiddin Haji Mohd Yassin, the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia on 22 May 2012.

    This project was started in 2009 through the process of design for nearly one year and the construction works of the building took two years. This project was completed on 15 November 2011 and was delivered to MTIB on 5 December 2011 by Public Work Department (JKR) as the Project Supervision Body.


    This building pioneered the unique application of innovative engineered timber products with the use of glulam as the main structure using various types of local timber. This building will function as a showcase and referral centre forprofessionals such as architects, engineers, contractors and all consumers and stakeholders including government agencies like Public Works Department, Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), Ministry of Housing and Local Governments, other local councils and private agencies.

    This project also symbolised theagency’s owner identity, implying the technology of engineered wood (glulam) as the first building which conceptualised iconic timber building shaped as half-umbrella.

    The main glulam portal frames used Malaysian Hardwood from Resak and Keruing while the roof used Belian as shingles (estimated over 350,000 pieces). Besides, the timber wall cladding are constructed from Kekatong and timber fins from Balau.

    Developing the Fibre and Biocomposite Industry in Malaysia

    The Fibre and Biocomposite Development Centre (FIDEC) was established to spearhead the development of the fibre and biocomposite industry in Malaysia. Established in September 2006 as a focal point for information on pre-commercialisation activities and coordination of Research & Development (R&D) exclusively for the biocomposite industry in Malaysia, the objectives of FIDEC are :-
    • To stimulate interest in and to enhance the utilization of fibre and biocomposite materials in the country,
    • To facilitate pre-commercialisation of fibre and biocomposite materials,
    • To establish vital linkages and smart partnerships with universities, research institutions and the industry towards commercialization of R&D findings related to fibre and biocomposites,
    • To coordinate the overall development of the fibre and biocomposite industry in Malaysia.

    Alternative Resources of the Future

    Malaysia has vast amounts of untapped natural fibre materials available from the agricultural sector. These fibre and biomass materials range from rice husks, coconut trunk fibres, kenaf to oil palm biomass in the form of oil palm trunks (OPT), oil palm fronds (OPF) and empty fruit bunches (EFB) which can serve as alternative resources for the future and have the potential to be commercially manufactured into a range of composite products such as plywood, fibreboards, flooring, wall panels, door stiles and door jambs to fibre-filled thermoplastic and thermoset composites, as well as other value-added products. FIDEC will spearhead the growth and development of the fibre and biocomposite industry in Malaysia.

    The Way Forward

    FIDEC will initiate smart linkages with institutions of higher learning, universities, R&D agencies and government departments to enter into research and development projects geared towards wider utilization of natural fibres and for new product development.

    Next Generation of Biomaterial

    Natural fibres have excellent physical and mechanical properties and such fibres can be used to produce composite products for various end-uses. Natural fibres are thus the next generation of biomaterial for the future.

    Turning Biomass to Wealth 

    Natural fibres which would otherwise not be utilized and therefore be considered as waste materials can be further researched into, and developed into viable products which can be marketed both domestically and overseas. This would open up new areas of growth as well as a new industry in based on fibres and biocomposite materials for Malaysia.

    Green Products

    The utilization of biocomposite materials will gain momentum in the years to come as products manufactured from natural fibres and biocomposite materials gain popularity. These products would be considered as being environmentally friendly products since they are manufactured from waste materials which would otherwise be disposed of through incineration.
