The largest timber residential building in Switzerland was completed in Winterthur: It is called "sue&til". Timbatec Holzbauingenieure Schweiz AG was responsible for the timber construction planning and the fire protection concept for this flagship project.

sue&til: The currently largest wooden residential building in Switzerland contains 307 apartments, a mixed-use ground floor and 200 parking lots. The 6-storey building is a flagship project for timber construction in Switzerland. Thanks to consistent digital planning and a high degree of prefabrication, sue&til is more economical in timber construction than a comparable reinforced concrete project.   


Often, delays in the construction process must be counted on for such large projects. However, not at sue&til in Winterthur. The first tenants were able to move into their apartments six months earlier than planned. Thanks to the innovative solutions and the dry construction method possible with wood, the first tenants were able to move into their apartments 14 months after the start of the erection work.


The building is exemplary from many points of view: sue&til consists of 80% wood. A considerable amount of CO2 is stored in the settlement. The ceilings as well as the interior and exterior walls consist of prefabricated elements. Only the staircase and the cellar are made of concrete. Further sue&til follows the principles of the 2000 Watt society and needs so among other things little heating energy.
