Rubner Objektbau wins two new projects in Germany and is commissioned with constructing two new public housing buildings using modular timber construction techniques

Germany is currently trying to revive a large number of residential neighbourhoods, and the modular construction approaches developed by Rubner Objektbau as early as in 2016 are highly beneficial for this purpose. The first project of this kind – a two-storey building with 18 modular housing units – was successfully completed in autumn 2016, i. e. the same year, within record time.

High demand for housing and little availability of building sites in the Federal Republic of Germany make it necessary to use existing spaces within the cities – scenarios in which modular timber systems are often perfectly suitable and best meet the key requirements of municipalities and investors. Modular timber construction technology is based on a repetitive construction module, which can be assembled in various configurations, thus matching a variety of different scenarios and different site sizes.

As of now (August 2017), Rubner Objektbau implements turnkey project for public housing at two construction sites in Germany:

•           In Göttingen (Albrecht-Thaer-Weg): Four three-storey residential buildings with 51 housing units;

•           In Munich (Franz-Mader-Straße): Two two-storey residential buildings with 15 housing units and a one-storey office building.
