Three-storey residential buildings
made of wooden modules

The three-storey residential buildings are founded on proven reinforced concrete floor slabs. The central access core and the three flats per storey connected to it are made of wooden modules prefabricated in the factory. On the ground floor, the basement replacement rooms and the technical room replace one residential unit. There are two flat types: a 2‑room flat with 55 m² of living space and a 4‑room flat with 92 m² of living space. The 16 residential units consist of ten 2‑room flats and six 4‑room flats.

Modular construction
one storey per day

The total of 54 timber modules for the apartment buildings in Nettetal-Lobberich were prefabricated in the factory by approx. 75 %. The finishing work included the installation of windows and facade bands, finished bathrooms and electrical, heating, sanitary and ventilation installations. At the construction site, the modules were finally assembled step by step together with the balconies made of precast concrete parts. One storey of nine modules was created per assembly day. This was followed by further work such as the construction of the conventional clinker facade and the interior fittings.
