Timber is versatile
The new building for the Kasprowicz bakery made a wide range of demands on the timber support structure. Aesthetics played an important role, especially in the offices and the production shop which is accessible to visitors. In the logistics and closed production areas, the focus was primarily on functionality and economy. The aim was to stiffen the building predominantly by means of the timber construction. This allowed our timber to prove its versatility.
So the bakery was built [as a timber construction|
The main supporting structure consists of parallel-chord glued laminated timber beams that rest on timber supports or are suspended with plug-in connectors. The secondary structure above it was constructed with multi-span WIEHAG roof panels. The building shell was then completed with WIEHAG wall panels, which were later partly covered with sheet metal and partly clad with rhombus formwork. The elements are insulated and back-ventilated and form a functional building shell in terms of building physics.
The stiffening was achieved by roof and wall panel formations, as well as by wall bracing made of timber and steel. The F30 fire-retardant requirement presents no problem for the support structure. In addition, maintenance and ventilation platforms, as well as a visitor platform, were suspended from the roof structure via purlins, which transmit the loads via the girders into the foundations.
Impressive from planning through to assembly
A particular challenge here are the many interfaces with other trades. These were reliably mastered through the direct exchange of 3D models on BIM-based digital interfaces. The client was particularly pleased with the rapid progress on the building site, made possible by the high degree of prefabrication and clever connections at our plant in Altheim.
