wooden building handbook
Reihe 1, Teil 3, Folge 11, Bonn 2008
This 200-page publication constitutes a practical tool for planning industrial and commercial buildings with wooden structures.
In addition to the architectural perspective, topics concerning productions and logistics are addressed.
Due to the rapid development of technologies in all industrial branches, the design of factories should take a later expansions or conversion and thus the highest possible flexibility into account.
The publication transfers those requirements into architectural typologies. Static systems and structural models are presented as well as solutionmaking of design alternatives.
A broad chapter gives an overview of building physics, protection from corrosion and fire, construction products and standard solutions. At the end twelve buildings are documented textural and pictorial.
