Planning contract
• Concept and development of the roof support structure
• Dimensioning and execution statics
• Development of the material configuration and test execution

Project description
The roof construction of the museum consists of a space framework with wave-shaped plywood waves. The material is exposed to enormous snow loads as the building is located at about 2400 m above sea level. No standard
material was able to meet the requirements, so panels were produced specifically for this project in Finland, tested and evaluated in Switzerland and installed in the Rocky Mountains.

Projektbeschrieb
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is one of the most important of its kind. Botanical gardens can create a pavilion here to present themselves to a wide audience. The jury awarded the silver medal to the pavilion of Times Eureka Garden and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Its very complex structure is modelled on the cell walls of plants.

Project description
In the new terminal of Oslo International Airport, five pavilions have been built to accommodate stores and subdivide the space. Each pavilion is an individual free form. The substructure for the exterior and interior cladding was made of wood. Frames made of laminated veneer timber form the main supporting structure of the individual pavilions. These are milled on the top and underside, thus giving them their shape. This allows the inner and outer cladding to be attached directly to the wood.
