WAP Haute Borne - 16.056.01


Complete mission for C & S engineering of a timber structure.


The WaP ‘Work and Progress’-building is a timber office building consisting of three floors and an underground car park with slabs in reinforced concrete.

Specific features

The wooden structure is a mixed system with steel beams, floors and walls in massive CLT-plates, and prefab roofing elements in timber framing. The geometric complexity of the building was challenging and demanded specific solutions. This included cantilevers up to 4 meter, reinforced tubes in laminated wooden beams, a lattice beam along the skids of the stairs to counter wind loads, a mixed vierendeel-beam in CLT and steel with a span of 22.5 m, joints with epoxy resin, etc.
