Lightweight ceilings for timber construction

Together with architects Duplex and engineers WaltGalmarini, Implenia is building Switzerland’s first timber high-rise: Project “Pi” in the city of Zug. In order to minimise the overall structural load across the 27 stories and 80 metre height, our Timber Construction team worked with the civil engineers at WaltGalmarini to develop a composite wood ceiling that only uses 90 millimetres of concrete.
