Largest timber construction project will be built in the Netherlands
The largest wooden housing project in Europe, with a total floor area of 18,700 m2, will be built on the edge of the center of Heerhugowaard in less than a year, if everything goes according to plan. The required 7,300 m3 of wood comes from sustainably managed forests.
The specialized company Hamlet Design+Build Technology is responsible for the design and realization of the wooden hull.
The initiator of the project is the North Holland project developer M.J. De Nijs Projectontwikkeling.
The large-scale timber construction project will consist of 5 residential towers with 200 apartments. The tallest tower has 12 floors and is 42 meters high. The elevator shafts and stairwells are also constructed from CLT.
Hamlet from Haarlem, The Netherlands, is fully committed to designing and building CLT projects, and in particular multi-layer housing. “In order to guarantee a cost-efficient building, we work according to the 'design for assembly' principle,” said Hans Lormans, founder and director of Hamlet.
De Nijs appreciated the collaboration with Hamlet, because they are now also working together on a project in Amsterdam.
