Palmer Events Center
A multi-purpose venue nestled next to Butler Park with an incredible view of downtown Austin. The venue features a flexible floor plan with 125,000 gross square feet.
This was the largest Glulam project in North America in 2001, delivered on time and on budget. The project design called for a very large, clear-span space which required each truss to be different, something that was accomplished with flexibility on the manufacturing floor and a flexible setup for truss assembly. These trusses help to establish a "pavilion in the park" effect. The Palmer Events Center is powered by renewable energy from Austin Energy's Green Choice Program.
