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 «Timber Finance Initiative» focuses on wood against climate change. Timber Finance wants to become the Swiss competence center for sustainable timber investments and thus connects the timber construction and finance industries. The startup, based in our offices in Zurich, was co-founded by Stefan Zöllig, among others. We wish you a good start.

    For the Tech Cluster Zug, researchers from ETH Zurich are building a planted architectural sculpture together with Müller Illien landscape architects, Timbatec and other partners. The 22.5 meter high structure consists of five geometrically complex wooden shells and is currently being produced by robots at ETH.
