BIM, Buildings, Timber

The timber frame structure (glued laminated timber) is sitting on top of an existing concrete structure, build in the 1960s. Due to the chosen structural system it is possible to maintain the majority of the existing structure as well as the existing foundation. Additionally, a one-story timber structure is added on to the existing concrete structure. The existing structure was extensively tested and the structural stability was proven in accordance with current code standards.
