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
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.
