Butt joint bonding of timber

 The engineers at Timbatec managed to glue timber on the face side. This opens up a whole new world of structural and design-related options that was previously inaccessible to timber constructions


Bonding of beams

 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form beams of any length


Bonding of slabs

 Gluing cross-laminated timber to form slim slabs of any size


Column heads

 Highly stable column heads with breaking loads from 1,100 to 3,100 kN (110 to 310 tonnes)


Floor slabs

 Connecting column heads to ceiling elements to create slim floor slabs


Frame construction

 These new technologies make it possible to construct multiaxial-bearing slim slabs for structural timber elements


High-rise buildings

 The new technologies put the construction of high-rise timber buildings within reach. The structural elements may need to be encapsulated, i.e. clad, with plasterboard depending on national regulations


Shear walls without slippage

 It is now possible to calculate bracing walls as an entire surface with cut-outs. This reduces flexibility and increases rigidity, e.g. for seismic loads


Simple V-structures

 Angled surfaces can also be bonded. This makes it possible to form simple V-structures, for instance


Complex folded plates

 Unfolding makes it possible to create complex folded plates


Bridge construction

 Tiled slab box used in bridge construction


Pipe-shaped modules

 Box modules open at the face side for hotel rooms


Buildings made of curved construction elements

 Curved construction elements can also be bonded, e.g. for troughs, salt silos, masts for wind farms and similar.


3D shell structures

 Biaxially curved shells can be used to construct 3-dimensional shell structures


Free forms

 Free forms are now also possible

    The TS3 long-term test stand at the Bern University of Applied Sciences has delivered important results for the successful development of TS3 technology and has helped the technology to achieve a market breakthrough. Now it has been dismantled. In keeping with the circular economy, the cross laminated timber boards are being used to create a new object: two box girder elements for heavy-duty bridges.

    A new innovation quarter is being built in Zug - the Tech Cluster of Zug. In the midst of the new and renovated buildings stands «Semiramis». A tower with five oversized plant bowls made of wood. TS3 and Timbatec are pleased to be part of this lighthouse project.

    Building construction makes a decisive contribution to achieving climate targets if it completely dispenses with steel and concrete. The next logical step is to do without these building materials in basements. Together with Timbatec and other business partners, Timber Structures 3.0 AG has built Switzerland's first basement made of wood in Thun. Now your opinion is needed. Take part in our survey.

    It is generally accepted that timber buildings are better than solid buildings from an ecological point of view. The big question is: How do the two construction methods compare economically? The consulting firm Wüest Partner AG has evaluated eight major new timber construction projects of recent years. The conclusion: timber construction, the ecological leader, can also hold its own economically.

    Wood construction has left its niche existence and is becoming the standard. As a result, global demand for wood construction products and their prices continue to rise. New timber construction products are needed to counter this trend: Scrimber would be one solution.
