Edes Building nearing completion; will host art gallery, wine bar

“We have used mass timber (or glu-laminated beams) for years, but this is a first for the cross-laminated timber panels,” said Larry Kent, with Kent Construction, the general contractor on the project. “Some of the CLT panels on the Edes Building are very large panels (about 40’ x 10’ x 5” thick), that needed to be craned into place. This is a relatively new system, designed to speed up the assembly process, but also to create shear walls and floor/roof diaphragms to allow window walls on both of the street frontages.”

The two-story, 6,800-square-foot building complies with Morgan Hill’s Sustainable Building Provisions, which include developing environmentally responsible and efficient structures.
