The construction company working on site during the first stage of work was in charge of marking and realising the foundation as well as the construction of slabs, pillars, and all support elements that the timber structure manufactured by Rubner Holzbau was to be placed on.
During the second phase, the Rubner Holzbau assembly teams mounted the timber structures. The dry, mortarless construction method makes assembly simple and fast.
Special care had to be taken during assembly and when mounting the two large, lenticular supporting beams which formed the key load-bearing structure of the overall expansion building.
The decision to go for timber as a construction material proved to be a great choice early in the process, because timber is an excellent compromise between structural performance and visual attractiveness. Using timber makes the building architecture both high-quality and eco-friendly, thus constituting a perfect match for the company’s product range. The new, curvy lines are highlighted by large-scale glass walls, which make the timber structure stand out and reflect the transparency of the existing part of the building, creating a harmonious unit.
