The first bank headquarters of a Swiss in wood

The Obwaldner Kantonalbank (OKB) deliberately chose wood as the building material for its new headquarters. The basement and the access core were realised in solid construction. The five storeys above ground were built in timber. The natural building material also characterises the interior fittings.

Our team was allowed to deliver the primary supporting structure made of ash wood including HBV ribs and connection technology with GSA. We are particularly pleased that a traditional company is relying on wood as a raw material for the construction of its new company building.
