Construction systems: The extremely diverse programme has called for a range of innovative solutions in mass timber construction to handle spans, flexibility, acoustics and overall statics. Standing 75 meters tall, the hotel is built up from premanufactured 3D-modules in cross-laminated timber, stacked between two elevator cores entirely made of CLT. The low rise is built with columns and beams of GLT and cores and shear walls in CLT. The integrated structural design has eliminated the need for concrete entirely from the load bearing structure, speeding up construction and drastically reducing the carbon footprint.


Wood type (s): Pine and spruce


Label (s) or certification (s): Miljöbyggnad guld
