Inspiring works: Lumber 4 is a commercial and office building of six levels located in Kristiansand, Norway.
The structure consists of a massive construction of wood with columns and beams of glued laminated timber.
Floors are built using a structure consisting of CLT and concrete, what creates a system of thin and efficient floor covering long distances and meeting acoustic and firefighting requirements at the same time.
Facade is made up by prefabricated curved elements of pine wood treated with green paint.
This building construction was finished in record time and the detailed planning and construction took only 12 months.
“Lumber 4” has proved that constructing competitive wood buildings is possible if we compare them with the same standard technical structures of cement and steel.
