The building’s floor-plan dimensions are 190 x 55 m. Glulam beams with a length of 43 m and a cross-section of 32/222 cm were used for the construction. The façade was covered with three-layer glulam panels, which were positioned on a supporting structure also made from glulam.
The structural frame of the production facility consists of glulam main girders with a span of 36.00 m resting on supports with spaces of 7.2 m between the axes. The outside areas come with 9-metre spans. The roof has two suspended wooden ceilings positioned in a cantilevered area. The building is completed with a secondary construction of stringers spaced at 2 m and a glulam panel.
The office space is supported by an arched structure with a maximum span of 36 m, which is resting on existing cement pillars and an arched header with a span of 30 m. The method used for the production area is also used for the rest of the structure.
