  • 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.
