New Case Study: Efficient sound control for timberconstructed student residence
The new case study shows how Europe's biggest building made out of timber uses the highly elastic materials of Getzner. On six floors, 100 metres in length and made of solid wood, 371 student flats are strung out in the district of Wilhelmsburg in Hamburg. This makes "UDQ" the biggest timber student residence in Europe and the tallest timber building in Hamburg. Inspired by the stacked containers in the Port of Hamburg, “UDQ” is made up of prefabricated timber modules that are stacked on top of and next to one other. The whole construction sits on a base of reinforced concrete. Each of the 20 m2 apartments is fully furnished – with bed, bathroom, built-in wardrobe, kitchenette and folding table. Where necessary, single modules can also be combined to create larger apartments.
Bearing of modules - Advantages
- Effective vibration isolation for modular buildings with Sylomer®
- Short construction time as a clear advantage of the modular construction method
- Ease of transport
