The Annen Head Office Project consists in a series of 23 vaults with spans ranging from 22.5 m to 53.7 m. The project will accommodate a 5800m2 facility including a timber prefabrication factory space and offices.
The entire structure was studied and tested beforehand, and the project is currently being carried out in Manternach.
The research is available in the publication “A framework to automate the design of digitally-fabricated timber plate structures” Computers and Structures, Volume 244.
