Like living in a spruce forest

A feeling of wellbeing is part and parcel of living in a solid structural timber home. Even more so when you know that your home is built with spruce timber from sustainably-managed and PEFC-certifified forests. On the edge of the old town of the Hanseatic city of Wismar there are two new three-storey residential buildings, built with MM HBE. These solid structural timber panels from Mayr-Melnhof Holz are a standardised format glulam panel for walls, ceilings, and roofs. Until recently, the MM HBE system was only used for smaller projects, like single family homes, garden houses, or home extensions. But this first use of HBE in a multistorey residential building project exceeded all expectations in terms of ease of use, speed of erection and cost efficiency.

480 m³ of MM HBE glulam house building element

When the developers acquired the land in Dr. Leber Strasse in Wismar, the idea was already well established to erect the first multistorey building using the MM HBE system. The plot lent itself to building a watertight lower storey comprising an underground parking area and several basement rooms in steel & concrete. Inspired by the style of the historic old city of Wismar, and fitting perfectly into the surroundings, two twins towers were built on top of the concrete lower storey, using HBE panels for the walls and ceilings. Even the 10m high lift shaft – which was assembled off-site and then installed in its entirety on site - was built out of wood.   

The two HBE system-built structures, containing 12 apartments on three storeys, were completed in just five weeks. The HBE system consists of solid glulam panels, identical in size and format, that must only be glued and assembled like building blocks. This innovative building product is produced by Mayr-Melnhof Holz in Wismar, not far from the Dr. Leber residential complex.

Developers and planners were surprised by the speed of construction and the low building costs. The new occupants are equally impressed by the high quality standards, the agreeable indoor climate, and the low energy requirements, ecologically delivered by a combined heat & power plant.
