Located only a few minutes' walk away from Salzburg's main train station, “Hotel zum Hirschen” is currently undergoing renovation including an extension. Under the project name "Am Hirschen Grün", 42 apartments are currently being built, a 4-star hotel with 120 rooms, an underground car park and a large garden in the courtyard.
The former hotel building will be gutted, renovated and extended by two new wings. The six-story residential building will adjoin directly to it. The new buildings feature a wood hybrid construction method, which was designed by Dietrich Untertrifaller Architekten in cooperation with LP Architektur. Wood that can be both seen and felt is the focus of attention here and completion is expected at the beginning of 2024.
We are delighted that the use of our CLTPLUS and glulam means that THEURL will be a part of this project and, together with our client Zimmerei Rupert Burgschwaiger (carpenter), we are eager to take on the logistical challenges of this inner-city timber construction. In addition to many other advantages, the decision to build with wood requires only a quarter of the delivery trucks that alternative construction methods would.
The timber construction, including all the timber joinery details, is planned in 3 construction phases together with our client Zimmerei Burgschwaiger. This is where our B2B portal – TIM – comes into play. TIM facilitates digital collaboration and provides a secure and easy communication platform.
The designed components are created by a perfect interaction of hardware and software based on the released production and cutting plans: State-of-the-art framing machines put CLTPLUS elements together, quickly and precisely, in any designed shape. This allows complete components for wall or ceiling elements to be manufactured from a master panel.
The panels, which are up to 16 metres long, create logistical challenges and every delivery must be planned in advance precisely. To ensure panels are delivered to the construction site in the correct order, we use a specially developed load space optimisation programme to virtually pre-plan every delivery. This saves a lot of time on-site, as the components are delivered in the correct order.
