More than just a game: at Swissbau 2022, Holzbau Schweiz will be demonstrating the performance and competitiveness of the Swiss timber construction industry with the “Jenga” high-rise wooden building. The project is a good example of the fact that there are no upper limits to the building material and innovations in the timber construction sector.
In the form of a study competition, eleven teams of architecture students from the Bern University dealt with the development of a wooden high-rise building. A mock-up on a scale of 1:1, consisting of two full storeys with a cantilever, is intended to impress visitors from afar.
The fastening technology of the supporting structure is carried out with the fittings of neue Holzbau AG Lungern, which is constantly developing high-performance connections for components in softwood and hardwood. The assembly of the connection technology on the beech wood components is prepared in the factory in Lungern. In mid-April, n’H Lungern will deliver the ready-made components directly to Basel.
