The 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.  


Functional modules with repetitive types of construction were developed for this project. At the same time, the floor plans are very individual and attractive for singles, couples, families or pensioners. The complex is not only interesting from an architectural and timber construction point of view. It also meets the highest energy requirements and fulfils the requirements of the 2000-watt society. 


The Construction  

sue&til consists of 80% wood. The ceilings as well as the interior and exterior walls consist of prefabricated elements. Only the staircase, the ground floor and the cellar are made of reinforced  concrete. 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. 


The Challenges  

The very fast construction method required consistent prefabrication and precise site logistics. This requires a complete and error-free planning of all components. Timbatec played its part with the factory planning, the fire protection and statics concept and the site inspections.
