The Timber Pioneer - The Production
Green Building meets Smart Office
The Timber Pioneer office building combines sustainable construction with a smart office concept. A flexible room layout allows the combination of open work landscapes, places of retreat and comfortable meeting zones.
As the building material of the future, the intensive use of timber not only ensures a comfortable working environment, but also makes a significant contribution to ecologically sustainable construction. Thanks to the modular timber-hybrid construction, around 80 % CO₂ could be saved. In combination with the smart building technology, the Timber Pioneer becomes a benchmark for climate-friendly buildings.
Engineering for a
With the innovative Timber Pioneer, a multifunctional building made of timber is being constructed on eight floors. On this scale, it requires, above all, know-how in dealing with timber high-rise buildings and customised components.
The composite elements for the timber hybrid building are made of timber, concrete and steel and were industrially prefabricated - this allowed the construction time to be shortened considerably. In addition, this construction method made it possible to construct the shell of the office floors in a completely CO₂-neutral way. At 300 kg/m², the building is 57 % lighter than comparable solid structures. A total of 1,500 m³ of spruce timber ensures a healthy building climate and a forward-looking climate balance.
