Lattich timber modular construction as a meeting place for creative exchange

The construction of 48 timber modules planned in 2018 offers creative minds the space they need to realise their plans and visions over the next 10 years. The spacious workspace caters for small businesses from all sectors. From crafts and trades to communication and design, the aim is to enrich the region with more creative minds. The specified development standard, including heating and sanitary installations, insulation, electricity and internet connections, ensures an optimal basic configuration that covers the essential factors. When construction commenced in November 2018, we were responsible for the timber construction planning and commissioned for the delivery of the modular construction. The timber modules were prefabricated in our factory by the end of 2018 and assembled on site in Lattich at the beginning of 2019 via a modular system. A major advantage of the modular construction is that it allows for precise planning of costs and scheduling. This type of construction also leads the way in terms of sustainability and mobility, providing added value for both the tenant and the city.
