Structural Engineered Bamboo - Veterans Airport Terminal
First Airport Roof Terminal in the World
Integrating (SEB) Structural Engineered Bamboo
March of 2016
Veterans Airport Terminal – Structural Engineered Bamboo Roof System
For the first time in history Structural Engineered Bamboo is implemented. The durability and beauty of (SEB) structural engineered bamboo are already on display at the new 23,000-square-foot replacement terminal for the Williamson County Regional Airport in Marion, Illinois. Utilizing a pre-engineered hybrid dome of structural steel and engineered bamboo cross beams, the architects of RS&H created a soaring display of exposed structure visible overhead in the terminal’s central court.
“I am pleased to see that the Structural Engineered Bamboo materials that were envisioned while studying Architecture at Southern Illinois University in 2002 are now implemented in such an innovative way and so close to my school.”

History of SEB (Structural Engineered Bamboo)
The initiation of "Structural Engineered Bamboo" started at the family farm when founder and owner, Luke D. Schuette prototyped the first structural beams for testing by laminating bamboo slats to create beams for structural applications in 2003 (his final year of architecture school). This lead to his life’s work as the internationally recognized researcher, creator, and innovator of the disrupting material technology: SEB (Structural Engineered Bamboo) for performance-based, architectural, & structural applications.
