Wooden daycare center
in Brüggen-Bracht

The new kindergarten Mevissenfeld was built in Brüggen-Bracht in only five months. The new building of the day care centre is designed for four care groups. In addition to the group rooms for up to 80 children, the day care centre includes a cafeteria, a workshop and differentiation rooms. The daycare centre in Brüggen-Bracht is a hybrid construction: It consists of X-LAM exterior walls, glulam trusses and beams.

Daycare centre
in hybrid construction

The exterior walls of the daycare centre in Brüggen-Bracht are made of X-LAM with a thermal insulation composite system. The load-bearing interior supports were built from glulam. The interior walls were non-load-bearing and therefore made of plasterboard. This allows the room layout to be changed with little effort, depending on requirements.

Derix provided us with excellent advice and our building project
implemented in an exemplary manner.

We are so satisfied with the competent and cooperative collaboration that we are already building the next daycare centre with DERIX! Our day care centre in Brüggen-Bracht was completed even faster than planned thanks to DERIX. Not only has it become a beautiful and sustainable building, but it can also be flexibly adapted according to our needs. By using load-bearing interior supports made of glulam, it was possible to design the interior walls of our day care centre as non-load-bearing walls. This has the great advantage that we can now adapt them with little effort according to requirements. Derix provided us with excellent advice and support and implemented our building project in an exemplary manner.

With the DERIX-Group connects
us a successful cooperation for many years.

We have a long-standing successful cooperation with the DERIX-Group. I particularly appreciate the reliability and the competent exchange in partnership during the planning and implementation of the projects. The high quality and accuracy of fit with which the components are manufactured is worth its weight in gold and, in addition to a high-quality result, also leads above all to short construction times. Due to the excellent results and the good mutual basis of trust, I always enjoy working with the DERIX-Group.

The advantages of wood
in the day nursery Brüggen-Bracht

Thanks to the timber construction method with its high degree of prefabrication, the construction time of the daycare centre was extremely short at only five months. In addition, the recyclability of the materials used ensures ecological construction. Another reason for choosing the material was the very flexible use of space: the non-load-bearing interior walls can be moved with little effort, making it easy to create new room layouts.


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.

Solid and versatile element construction

Whether roof, ceiling or wall – X-LAM can be used in a variety of ways. Our X-LAM element construction gives you great freedom in building design. The flexibly usable elements made of cross laminated timber are custom-made for you and can be assembled quickly and easily.
