prefabrication buildings with a wooden facade


Prefabricated buildings were built in an era when time and efficiency were the most important economic factors of housing construction. Additionally, environmental concerns become more relevant today. The old prefabricated concrete panels could also be interchanged with wooden elements. The old prefabricated facade is a load-bearing facade. The suggested new facade could be a load-bearing mullion/transom construction (Kerto LVL S-beam) combined with wooden panels (indoor, Kerto LVL Q-panel) and wooden cladding (outdoor, Kerto LVL T-stud), based on a fundament. Therefore, the new facade is a combined structure design. The prefabricated wood panels and the mullion/transom structure made from profiled wood form a unit. This is important for fastening and sealing up the wooden walls. The mullion/transom profiles act as an adapter between the concrete indoor walls/ceilings and the new wooden panels. I suggest a selection of windows: round windows, French doors, small and large windows. Furthermore, I suggest here various sun protection measures because the main facade is facing south. position: Berlin/ Germany selected building: residential building - prefabricated building, for example type WBS 70 selected element: the facade construction: structure of profiled wood frame with outer wooden wall as fills windows: individual designs
