This paper presents the results of creep tests of Laminated Veneer Lumber Sengon (LVL Sengon) beams, aiming to determine the creep factor and to establish the prediction beam deflection based on the initial creep test data. The LVL Sengon beams have a cross section of 40 mm by 80 mm and a clear span length of 2,000 mm, they were loaded at midspan for three different stress levels: 30%, 40%, and 50% of the ultimate load within 30, 60, and 90 days. Each loading level consists of four repetitive beams where one beam was wrapped with a plastic sheet. The test results showed that for 90 days the bending creep test can not determine the secondary creep yet. Curve fitting of bending creep test data indicated that the parameters of the Modified Burger creep model of the first 30 days can be accurately used to predict the beam deflection curve up to 60 and 90 days of loading.
