Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) is the main entry point to Yellowstone National Park, one of the fastest-growing airports in the United States. BZN underwent a significant terminal expansion project from 2011 to 2020 to accommodate the growing number of passengers and airline services. An essential component of this expansion was the incorporation of glulam beams into the roof structure.

QB Corporation, a distinguished manufacturer of glulam beams, took pride in being involved in the terminal expansion project. QB Corporation supplied custom and stock glulam beams for the project, ensuring they met the specified requirements and project deadlines. Including glulam beams enhanced the terminal’s design and functionality, resulting in a spacious and welcoming environment for passengers. Moreover, the glulam beams added a natural and warm aesthetic, reflecting the airport’s connection to Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding landscape.

QB Corporation’s glulam beams contributed to various elements of the terminal expansion project, including trusses, headers, columns, and pergolas. The terminal boasts an appealing fusion of natural Douglas Fir wood and stone materials, creating an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. One of the notable highlights of the terminal expansion project is Concourse B, which features an indoor pergola uniquely supported by QB Corporation’s glulam beams. Through the airport’s commitment to excellence and utilization of QB Corporation’s exceptional glulam products, travelers passing through this remarkable facility have an unforgettable journey.
