Terminal buildings
Robust and representative through wood

terminal buildings

Terminals are operated by airport companies or railway operators and are often semi-public buildings that mostly have a major impact on the respective cityscape. If these representative buildings are constructed using the sustainable and natural timber construction method, the city benefits directly from the positive green image that timber construction rightly enjoys. Furthermore, wood as a building material has many practical advantages: It is robust and thus supports the longevity of the terminal.

Why build terminals
with DERIX wooden elements?

With our timber constructions you build robust buildings. Especially for terminal buildings, a high resistance to vibrations or chemicals is an advantage. The natural building material wood thus ensures a long service life and a high-quality appearance at the same time. Learn about the other advantages of our construction method.

Vibration resistant

Terminals should be built particularly robustly, especially when heavy trains depart and arrive there, sometimes at high speeds. The construction method with wood creates terminal buildings that are often significantly more resistant to vibrations than comparable terminals built with other materials due to the flexible natural material.

Fast availability due to
short construction time

Due to the high level of prefabrication of our timber constructions, on-time delivery and fast assembly on site, the construction time is greatly reduced. This means that your terminal building is quickly available, with less impact on operations.

to chemicals

Wood has a high resistance to many chemicals. This can be a significant advantage in the construction of terminals and lead to a longer service life.

Column-free constructions

The low dead weight and high load-bearing capacity of our timber elements make support-free terminals with enormous spans possible. This means that the full area of the terminal can be used for operations without restriction.

Contribution to the
Climate protection

By building with our timber constructions, terminals become sustainable buildings and thus make an important contribution to climate protection. The respective city can benefit directly from this positive green image.


Through sustainable construction with wood, terminal buildings become ecological and potentially circular real estate. This also has a positive effect on the residual value of the property at the end of its useful life.

High quality and aesthetics

Our high-quality timber structures can be planned flexibly and thus make the most diverse architectural designs possible. Visible wooden elements give your terminal a high aesthetic value.


Individual glulam

With our glulam, individual constructions can be built, because we produce the components in almost any shape and size – entirely according to your wishes. The kiln-dried wooden boards are joined together by finger-jointing to form long lamellas. Discover our diverse range of glulam.

Sustainable building with wood

Wood is a renewable and natural raw material that stores CO2 and thus relieves the environment. Wood is a renewable and natural raw material that stores CO2 and thus relieves the environment. Learn more about the topic of sustainability when building with wood.
