The 5-storey lecture hall center is the first university building in the Netherlands to be constructed from solid wood. They supplied CLT BBS, glulam and 3-layer solid wood panels for this project. The timber construction elements were installed in such a way that they can be dismantled for further use in the future.

The advantages of the CLT BBS 125 system format

Build something solid with wood

binderholz CLT BBS has a multilayer construction, completely made of solid wood. By bonding the longitudinal and transverse layers together, any warping of the wood – swelling or shrinkage – is reduced to a negligible level. This means it can comfortably meet the requirements of a modern building material.

The CLT BBS 125 system format has many advantages

Installation of ceilings using BBS 125 provides structural benefits: self-supporting and dry construction methods, horizontal and vertical load transferring effect, dimensionally stable elements, and adequate fire resistance and acoustic insulation.

Finished visible surfaces are also available, creating a high degree of interior living comfort from the positive effect of the large area of timber on the indoor climate. Produced as 125 cm wide elements, BBS 125 boasts an optimum ratio of installation width to weight. The individual ceiling elements are load-bearing along 2 axes and are laid tightly against each other without a joint – there are no major contraction joints in normal climatic conditions of use.

Packaging Transport

BBS 125 system ceilings are grouped into packages and wrapped in UV-resistant film, which permits short-term temporary storage directly on site without the risk of weathering damage. The packages are grouped in accordance with the customer’s requirements, depending on the permissible weight of the unloading crane, and loaded onto the truck.

The loading order of the packages and BBS elements can also be done to meet the customer’s requirements and/or in installation order. With visible quality ceiling elements, the visible side faces downwards, with the exception of the bottommost element of the package, to protect the visible surface from dirt and damage. The truck can be unloaded by crane or fork-lift truck. The ceiling elements can also be laid directly from the truck at the customer’s request.

Further advantages

In view of its higher mass, the BBS 125 system ceiling has significant advantages over more lightweight ceiling systems in terms of sound insulation.
