Abstract [en]

In Sweden, there has been a long tradition of using timber in the construction of housing and in recent years, timber structural systems are increasingly used in multi-storey and large span buildings. The main focus of the majority of timber construction industries has been the development and utilisation of components, systems and construction techniques for the large market of residential buildings. Moelven Töreboda AB, a Scandinavian glulam manufacturer, has developed a beam and post system named “trä8” with the intention of filling the gap in the market for non-residential multi-storey buildings in timber. The developed timber beam and post system offers many advantages over other construction systems as well as being an attractive and versatile system for meeting clients’ and users’ expectations. This paper examines and provides guidelines on key issues in the development of the timber beam and post system for multi-storey non-residential buildings and deals with its structural system, assembly method and weather protection.
