RDU Airport

The roof system of the new C and D terminals at RDU are framed with a combination of steel and curved laminated wood. Stewart Engineering of Raleigh was the Structural Engineer-of-Record and Equilibrium Consulting of Vancouver was the Specialty Engineer-of-Record for the laminated wood connections. Fortunately for us, Equilibrium was not registered in North Carolina so they hired us to review and seal the Bertsche connections, developed in Germany, that were used for the laminated wood connections. We not only had the opportunity to work on a world-class project but we became good friends with Eric Karsh, a partner in Equilibrium.
