44,000 m² of cross laminated timber and 3,096 m³ of glued laminated timber

This project for the new ENEL coal storage facility in Brindisi included the construction of two half-domed geodetic structural frames with a diameter of 143 metres each and a total area of 22,000 m². This structure in Brindisi highlights Enel’s ecological ambitions, as natural materials were used for the construction. Wood is a structurally sound and flexible raw material – even for buildings with unusual and demanding properties.
