Computer-integrated construction of timber structure

Abstract: The paper presents the integrated information system supporting design, manufactory and construction of a large glued laminated timber structure in Aosta, Italy. Design, the structure was completely computer modelled with in-house developed software, which considered both torsion and curvature constraints of timber. Manufactory, further proprietary software was used to develop, on a plane, the shape of each timber layer without torsion and curvature. The profiles were converted into CNC instructions to cut the timber leaves. Construction, to manage and verify the process onsite RF Ethernet LAN was established to allow bi-directional online communication between total station, radio frequency identification and the information system.
