Wave-shaped façade elements for the Werd double kindergarten in Adliswil
We are currently manufacturing the 148 silver fir façade elements required for the new Werd double kindergarten in Adliswil. Sporting a striking 3D design, the battens are milled into wave-like shapes using a CNC machine. The façade has a total area of 220 m2. The first finished façade elements have already been installed. The final installation of the electrics, plumbing, heating and ventilation as well as interior fittings (built-in cupboards, tables, cloakroom, round fixed glazing) will begin next week.
On the morning of 1 February, the kindergarten children will get to visit their future kindergarten for the first time, along with their teachers and the project manager of the city of Adliswil. With construction making good progress, the keys will likely be handed over in early April. Lessons on the new premises are set to start after the summer holidays, in time for the new school year.
We have been commissioned as a general contractor to build this kindergarten using a modular timber construction. It includes two classrooms, each with a group room, a staff room, a spacious cloakroom, a utility room, and a toilet. We are installing a total of 1550 m2 of three-layer panels in the building, 840 m2 of which are of higher quality for visible areas on the walls and ceilings. A stand-out feature is the round windows with a diameter of 1.70 meters, which are located between the classroom and the group room.
