Building D(emountable) in Delft is a four-storey office building that has a hybrid structure combining a steel frame with wooden elements. The building project was fast: it took just a few months from the drawing board to a finalized building, and the load-bearing structure was put together in only three weeks. Fast, light and green Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber) elements were easy to install in the middle of a busy city.
Building D(emountable) in Delft’s city centre is a four-storey high office building designed by the architectural agency cepezed. They planned the building to be rented out to different-sized creative companies.
“I was impressed by the speed in assembly,” says cepezed founder and architect Jan Pesman.
“The whole stability structure was put together in only three weeks. We are planning to do this type of building more often, and we are very pleased with the results, too. Kerto LVL elements were practical and really suitable for prefabricated, industrial construction methods.”
