Flexible and modular beam and column structure for free office buildings, for free floor plans around a central corridor. Building width around 22 m or more, free office space width from approximately 9 m around the service cores.

Structural system and grid designed to optimize the use of timber, providing corridors free of down-standing beams to facilitate the HVAC and service distribution avoiding the penetration of structural elements.

Straightforward and clear design strategy that can be adapted for many project requirements, geometry or needs.

Reduces the carbon emission by approximately 7% compared to a mineral based benchmark in the whole life cycle (A1 to D5, 50 years).

Reduces the embodied carbon by approximately 13% (including all materials for the buildings, from foundations to claddings)

CLT wall cores for buildings up to approximately 6 storeys depending on local fire requirements and lateral loads.

Hybrid with concrete cores for building heights up to approximately 16 storeys without additional stiffening elements.
