New Burg school building, Liestal
Construction work on the new Burg school building in Liestal is now complete. The staff were able to move into and set up their new rooms during the summer holidays, and they have been used for regular lessons since 10 August. The building was created using a total of 36 wooden modules, each weighing around eight metric tons, and houses eleven classrooms, four group rooms and one common room for the students. The wood façade is made from native silver fir from the Basel region. It is designed to have a useful life that will last until it becomes necessary to renovate all the buildings on the site. Choosing a construction using sustainable wood modules meant shorter construction times and will also make it possible to use the modules for other purposes should the needs and requirements on room space change over the coming years.
