Behind the invisible name Werkhof+ hides a multifunctional hangar, built by the architects Ivo Erard Architekten + Planer AG. A building that, with its versatility, will be a central component of airport development for the coming years and decades.
The new building rests on 73 micropiles with a length of 10-14 metres each, as Grenchen Airport is located in the former alluvial plain of Lake Solothurn. The wooden facade was made of local white fir and the structural connections were made with our so-called GSA® technology.
