Market Building
ALDI Eisleben

For the ALDI store in Eisleben, a new building was constructed with robust and durable timber elements from DERIX. The combination of wood and steel ensures a strong supporting structure that meets the high demands placed on the building. The natural material wood also creates a natural and sustainable atmosphere in the market building and contributes to a pleasant shopping experience. By using these materials and construction techniques, a modern and at the same time ecological building was created that meets the requirements of contemporary construction.

Strong combination:
wood and steel

The roof construction of the market building consists of glulam roof girders fixed to glulam pendulum supports in the outer wall and steel clamping supports in the middle wall. These girders allow for a large span and ensure a stable roof construction. In addition, they were given a special surface treatment that protects the wood from weathering and moisture. The load-bearing and non-load-bearing walls were made of X-LAM panels.
