The project
Delays in the construction process often have to be expected with such large-scale projects. Not so with "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 made possible by wood, the first tenants were able to move into their apartments 14 months after the start of the erection work. Functional modules with repetitive construction types were developed for the investor project. At the same time, the floor plans are very diverse and equally attractive for singles, couples, families or retirees. The superstructure is not only interesting from an architectural and timber construction point of view. It also meets the highest energy requirements and complies with the specifications of the 2000-watt society.

The construction
The "sue und til" building consists of 80% wood. The floor slabs and the interior and exterior walls are made of prefabricated elements. Only the staircase and the basement are made of concrete. Thanks to the consistent digital planning and the high degree of prefabrication, "sue und til" is more economical in timber construction than a comparable project in reinforced concrete.

The challenge
The very fast construction method required consistent prefabrication and precise site logistics. This requires seamless and error-free planning of all components. Timbatec played its part with the works planning, the fire protection and structural analysis concept and the site inspections.
