The new SWG Schraubenwerk Gaisbach production hall blazes new trails in timber construction. Its architecture sets new standards in hardwood use and probes the limits of this forward-looking renewable building material in a novel way. Slender trusses give the factory building a delicate look as powerful supports absorb immense loads. Every detail of the building is a testament to innovation in craftsmanship and engineering. The interplay of these factors culminates in a ground-breaking building that harmonises efficient floor plans, a pleasant atmosphere, and sustainable construction in line with corporate identity. The fastener production hall demonstrates the potential of wood in industrial construction. This book features comprehensive documentation of the project from various perspectives, including in-depth specialist and technical insights.
– Detailed documentation of a pioneering building in timber construction
