Two multifamily residentials in Zollikerberg

THEURL Project with TS3 Technology

THEURL has been able to deploy innovative TS3 technology, for the first time, as part of the project to build two multifamily residentials. The process allows for generous support grids and flexible ceilings, a feature of the timber construction of tomorrow.

Why rely on TS3 technology?
„With the help of Timber Structures 3.0 technology, TS3 for short, exposed ceilings can now also be constructed with enormous spans and without having to deploy beams. TS3 connects cross-laminated timber via its end face in a flexurally rigid manner to form endlessly large ceiling slabs that are load-bearing in two directions. This means that buildings can be designed in concrete but constructed in wood. Which makes TS3 a technology that has the potential to change the world of construction for good.

We buy cross laminated timber in the form of raw panels and process them into ready-to-assemble prefabricated parts. We see TS3 technology as a great opportunity so we have integrated all feasible factory preparation work into our production process.“
