Online event at Schilliger Holz



The TS3 timber construction technology developed by Timbatec has made the breakthrough. Schilliger Holz is the first official CLT licensee. At an online event, the technology was explained and current projects were presented. Here you can find the recording of the event.

The TS3 technology is the result of more than ten years of research and development by Timbatec together with the ETH Zurich and the Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH). Today TS3 is ready for the market and has been outsourced to a separate company. 

After the welcoming address by Ernest Schilliger and Stefan Zöllig, Prof. Dr. Steffen Franke reported on the many years of research activity at the Bern University of Applied Sciences in Biel. He described the path from the "idea" in 2011, through countless tests in various test laboratories, to the construction of the external test stand in 2018. Franke concluded his presentation with a quote from Mark Twain "A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds", adding that the technology has arrived on the market and he believes in the success of the idea.

Pretreatment and potting 

As a highlight of the event, René Wicki demonstrated the pretreatment and potting of a TS3 joint. As interested persons were not able to follow the process live in the production halls of Schilliger Holz, all process steps were filmed and commented live. 

Despite the change of the event to an online meeting at short notice, over 40 people attended. We would like to thank Schilliger Holz for the good cooperation and all participants for being there as well as the numerous questions and comments in the chat. They have brought the event to life.

Innovations combined in one construction project   

Stefan Zöllig introduced the technology and showed exciting projects with the TS3 technology. The latest project of TS3, an apartment building in Thun, combines much more innovation than just TS3: Here, the first cellar in Switzerland is being built from wood. The building was planned with "3DExperience" from CATIA and is the living lab of the "DeepWood" research project together with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts and the BFH. In this project, the planning method Building Information Modeling (BIM) will be further developed and adapted to the needs of the timber industry. Here you can follow the construction site in Thun live.
