Cross-Laminated Timber Floor Model Parameters

Model

This project focuses on sustainability and innovation. Cross-laminated timber, glued-laminated timber, and BauBuche are primarily used as the building materials.

The structure offers space for 176 residents in 46 apartments. The total cost of the project amounts to 18 million euros. Dlubal customer PIRMIN JUNG was responsible for the structural design as well as the room and architectural acoustics. They utilized the RFEM and RSTAB programs for the structural analysis.

Structure

The Collegium Academicum dormitory consists of three structures connected by a single-story hall. The timber structure is joined by form-fitting and force-fitting all-timber connections. In order to decrease the join loads, a narrow construction grid was selected. The building’s lateral stiffness includes cross-laminated timber panels for the walls and ceilings. The access balconies act as a projected frame structure. An additional unique feature of the project is that the partition walls within the residential units are movable and can be adjusted to individual needs.

The building, which is made mainly of renewable raw materials, is intended to offer young people in Heidelberg affordable long-term living space.
