ABSTRACT. In order to reduce impacts to the environment, the civil construction stands out as a strategic sector, as it enables the assimilation of cleaner technologies and more sustainable materials. Linked to the research project “Glued laminated bamboo and timber : development of a flexible material for the production of furniture”, this research project sought to apply glued laminated bamboo and timber focusing on the industrialized production of a bus stop to be installed, experimentally, in Vila da Granja do Torto, Brasília – DF. This paper presents the process of producing a mockup to study its construction system in glued laminated bamboo and timber, aiming to contribute for its full-sized urban furniture. From the manufacturing and assembly of a mock up in the scale 1: 2.5, the objective was to understand the best ways and solutions for the industrialized production and in loco execution of the bus stop, including the improvement of the architectural design, its specifications and executive detailing. The evaluation of the assembly of the bus stop mockup provided needed information for the validation and feedback of the design process, as well as advances in the research for flex material applications in urban equipment of intensive use.
