When woodworkers, IT specialists and horticulturists work together in a network, something surprising can happen – like a test environment made of wood modules integrated into a complex material cycle. The flexibility of the mobile structures is immediately demonstrated in the state of emergency during the Corona pandemic: The sauna module, originally intended for the Giardina trade fair, is quickly converted into an X-ray room for a Covid 19 test centre in Zurich.
The dimensionally stable frame is decisive for the high flexibility of the modules – all walls can be removed and the structures can be used horizontally and vertically. The neue Holzbau AG, Lungern,
is responsible for its construction. A beech wood frame (6 × 3 × 3 meters) forms the basic structure of the room module. The heavily loaded corner joints are connected with GSA®-technology
designed to be resistant to bending.
