Training under the framework

Since autumn 2018, the Davos ice hockey club has had a new training hall right next to the Vaillant Arena. Pre-stressed wooden torches span the ice rink and the grandstand at 41 metres. The construction does not require any additional supports, which allows an undisturbed view of the ice rink.

Wood adventure world „Three robbers“

At the double kindergarten in Riehen, wood (larch) from local forests was used on a large scale. The pavilion, a pure wooden building, is a great source of identity and offers the children many experiences of perception and impulses for their own ideas.  The striking roof shape is a visual reference to the children’s book „The Three Robbers“ by Tomi Ungerer.

Victory for neue Holzbau AG

The Bürgenstock Hotel & Resort in Obbürgen became an unusual project in many respects. You would almost expect more superlatives in the description of the hotel complex. And this is also the case with the two symmetrically arranged tennis halls, in the middle of which there is an outdoor court.
It was a great concern of the architect and the client not to see any fasteners or connecting elements. Once again, the GSA® technology proved to be a precise and very efficient solution.

With Swiss wood high up in the air

On 29 September 2018, the world’s highest 3S railway was inaugurated. The new 3S-Bahn increases the transport capacity from the dry jetty to the small Matterhorn by 2,000 guests per hour. In just nine minutes – from the „Trockener Steg“ valley station to the „glacier ride“, Europe’s highest mountain railway station at 3,883 metres above sea level.
The new Holzbau AG supplied the primary wooden structure for the valley and mountain station.
