Kick-off for construction of the first residential complex with TS3 technology

15.08.2018

Line

Yesterday was the big day in Grossaffoltern: employees of Stuber Holzbau started constructing the first of four residential buildings in which TS3 bonding technology will play a role. The complex consists of twenty very comfortable apartments.

Four three-storey residential buildings will be built using the latest TS3 technology in the Grossaffoltern area around Berner Seeland by the end of November. This means that, for first time, cross-laminated panels manufactured using TS3 bonding technology will be used on a large scale to form the ceilings in the building. The individual panels measure 13 by 2.5 metres and the surface area of all the ceilings in the four apartment buildings amounts to around 2,300 square metres.


Building shell finished in a week

The carpenters began installing the prefab timber elements on the cast-concrete slabs last Tuesday. The first floor was finished in just one day. The building will be fully erected by next week.


Occupied by next year

The four buildings will house twenty apartments. The ground floor and first floor will house two apartments each, whilst each top floor will compromise one apartment. If everything goes to plan, the new tenants can look forward to moving into their new homes at the beginning of 2019.
