Vicbeam, located in Bayswater (Vic) has become the preferred supplier for many Victorian and Australia wide Timber Merchants and Wholesalers. We also work closely with architects and engineers.
Where it all started
In 2003 we realised that suppliers were failing their customers, not taking on the harder projects in laminated timber beams – there was a niche ready to be filled.
Andrew Wallace seized the opportunity as he had already been creating glulam works in Australia since the 80s, well ahead of the popularity we now see for the product.
While erecting glulam structures internationally, Andrew created a ‘can do’ attitude and a culture of strong constant innovation. Sons Joshua, Caleb and Tim have joined Andrew to make this a family values business.
Andrew worked on many major projects, including a pivotal one-year project in Hong Kong. The Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club (1991) took over a year at which time Andrew and his family relocated to Hong Kong where his expertise was required for several years.
