Timber Structures 3.0

Timbatec has been developing innovative products and applications since its foundation. One innovation is so promising that it was outsourced to a separate company: The TS3 technology. 


TS3 connects wooden components at the front and thus realizes large areas in wood. The technology is the result of ten years of research and development by Timbatec Holzbauingenieure Schweiz AG together with the Bern University of Applied Sciences in Biel and the ETH Zurich. Today the technology is ready for the market and the first construction projects have been built with it.

TS3 takes timber construction to the next dimension

TS3 is the technology for large-area timber construction and column spacing up to 8 x 8 metres. This makes large buildings and extraordinary architecture made of wood possible.

TS3 Skelettbau

Skeleton structure of wood 

The large column grid makes TS3 a real alternative to concrete – for residential, industry or public buildings.

TS3 Hochhäuser

Build high-rises

Thanks to the vertical load transfer through the columns, TS3 is the ideal construction method for timber high-rise buildings.

TS3 8x8

8 x 8 meter column grid

With TS3, floor slabs support in two directions and span to columns on an 8 x 8 meters grid.

TS3 Nutzungsflexibilität


Structural changes are simpler to implement than with concrete or conventional wooden structures.

TS3 Freiformen

Free forms

If you are looking for freedom of design, TS3 is the perfect choice, opening up completely new architectural possibilities.

TS3 Klimafreundlich

Climate friendly and local

Wood construction is more environmentally friendly than concrete: Wood stores CO2, it grows locally, and transport distances are short.

TS3 Baugeschwindigkeit

Speed of construction

Unlike concrete, wood structures do not require drying time. This speeds up construction and brings a quicker return on investment.

TS3 Transport

Lighter and space saving

The TS3 floor slabs are space-saving in thickness. In addition, TS3 is lightweight and is perfect for additions.
