New CLT Funeral Parlor in Chimay, Belgium

Structures Analyzed with Dlubal Software

  • Customer Project

Customer Project

The new Desmet-Dardenne funeral parlor was opened in the town of Chimay, France, in 2021. In search of an ecological construction, the choice was directed towards a structure mainly made of timber. Due to the free area of around 15,177 ft², the structure of this new funeral parlor allowed for gathering various funeral services in one place: a reception hall, a workshop, a store, offices, and a storage space.

Model Parameters

Model

The engineering office D-Bois carried out the complete design study for the timber frame lot. Among other things, they carried out the complete 3D modeling, including the HVAC networks, load reduction, a stability analysis of the CLT panels (roof slabs, floors, walls, beams, walls, consoles); and produced manufacturing and site plans for the entire structure.

Structure

The walls, floors, roof, and the elevator shaft are made of cross-laminated timber (CLT). Different compositions of CLT panels were used for the execution of the project. The panel thicknesses are suitable for this construction type and for good resistance to the existing loads. The floor and roof panels have a maximum span of 24 ft and are supported at their location by intermediate beams and columns made of glued-laminated timber GL24h or steel.

Design in RFEM

To calculate the load reduction and perform the design, the structure was modeled and analyzed in RFEM.

RF-LAMINATE was used for the definition of the compositions and the design of the CLT panels of the manufacturer KLH, which is available in the library of cross-laminated timber products accessible in the add-on module. The glued-laminated timber and steel elements were designed according to Eurocodes 5 and Eurocode 3 with the Belgian National Annexes in the add-on modules RF‑TIMBER Pro and RF‑STEEL EC3.
