Sponsoring athletics team Lungern

The athletics Lungern consists of young athletes from 2 to 7 years old. Currently the group consists of 14 boys and girls. With a lot of hard work and ambition LA Lungern trains all year round with a focus on the fun of movement / athletics. In the winter half of the year, most of the training takes place indoors, in the summer half of the year we can be found outside on the training grounds in Lungern. Our highlight is the competition season, which starts in spring. Here the children can finally show what they have practised and worked hard on their technique during the long winter sessions. To compete with the best on a regional and national level is an incentive for every drop of sweat. The disciplines sprint, 1000 metres, ball throw, high jump and long jump are the units we train the most.

Thanks to the generous support of the neue Holzbau AG, which we were able to win as main sponsor, we finally have modern competition clothing. We were allowed to buy trousers, shirt, trainer and top. The children wear the dresses with a lot of pride and with shining eyes.

Many thanks for the generous support.

Engineering report of the new „Crystal“ hall, HP Gasser AG

The cube called „Crystal“ has a length of 48.50 m, a width of 37.50 m and a height of 18 m – thus creating 4,700 m2 of storage and production space. The wooden structure was assembled in record time, thanks to the plug-in GSA®-connecting elements. Punctually at the beginning of 2020, production could be started as planned and the space between the GSA®-trusses could be used as storage space. With the truss height of more than 4 m is enough space available, which can be used optimally for this purpose.
The new production hall does not only impress by its size and equipment, but especially by the extended possibilities of a more effective production of the roof window elements.

Multifunctional hall Gossau

On 26 October 2020, the 36-metre long and 34-tonne main beam of the multifunctional hall in Gossau ZH was assembled. The connections were all made using our in-house GSA®-Technology. Great to see how everything fits! You can find the video here.

1. teo delivered from Lungern

Teo – the first grocery store without employees. Right around the corner it is always there for you. It has all the essential products you need for your day – to – day life. Thanks to the digital sales technology, you can shop 24 hours 7 days a week. The teo was produced and assembled in the heart of Switzerland in Lungern.

Every teo contains 4 modules, which can be transported to the desired destination of tegut…. The neue Holzbau AG and HP Gasser AG worked closely together and realized this innovative project on a high standard. The individual modules can be delivered to any location, so the construction process is reduced to a minimum.

The shopping fun can begin!

The tennis halls Bürgenstock are in Dezeen!

The well-known new tennis halls on the Bürgenstock have made it into the architecture magazine „Dezeen“!
Bruno Abplanalp, VR-President of the neue Holzbau AG, explains: „The shape and the interior profiles were given to us by the architects. We then developed the entire timber construction, the connections and all details accordingly with our GSA® -Technology“.

Valley and Mountain station, Klein Matterhorn, Zermatt

The world’s highest three-cable gondola leads to the Klein Matterhorn near Zermatt and will connect Italy with Switzerland in 2021. 

A wooden construction was chosen for the bottom and top stations. This was partly for design and ecological reasons and partly because the station buildings have to provide a fire resistance of 30 minutes (R30). Furthermore, wood is light and the GSA® technology of the neue Holzbau AG allows short construction times due to the prefabrication.

The wooden supports are deliberately designed solid in order to architecturally stage the heavy loads of wind and snow. Snow and avalanche loads of locally up to 6.0 tons per square meter and wind loads of 320 kg/m2 (more than three times the loads of the flat land) act on the building. The wooden construction is formed by rigid frames, each leaning against the other. The span was reduced with struts towards the rock face. Since components with a maximum length of 12 m could be transported, the beams and columns had to be constructed with flexurally stiff assembly joints.

Delamination-resistant gluing for hardwood

Process-safe industrial hardwood bonding with 1K PUR adhesive and primer
In 2019, neue Holzbau AG switched the surface bonding of the BSH softwood and hardwood plant to 1K PUR adhesives from Henkel. What can be formulated here in one sentence was a process in practice,
which lasted several years. In addition to the necessary pioneering spirit, the Swiss model company also had the right partners at its side: Henkel Engineered Wood and the Bern University of Applied Sciences.

A supporting structure entirely of ash GL40 + GL48

The main supporting structure in the Ekkharthof consists of 71 m3 ash-glulam
From 2014 to 2018 the Ekkharthof, a sanatorium and educational institution, was completely renovated. Architect Lukas Imhof, together with Neue Holzbau AG, Lungern/CH, realized the project entirely in wood. Like a barn, the interior is symmetrical. The solid frame structure made of ash is self-bracing. The bending-resistant connections were developed with the engineering office Josef Kolb, Romanshorn, and the engineers of Neue Holzbau using the GSA®-Technology.
Neue Holzbau AG has specialized in the production of glued laminated timber in hardwood and supplied the primary supporting structure in ash with frames, some of which were already assembled in the factory. Imhof also chose ash for its aesthetic appeal, which he preferred to that of beech, which has similar strength values.
