Together with the Bern University of Applied Sciences and Renggli, AXA has developed a high-performance hybrid construction system in timber and steel.
The prefabricated timber modules can be inserted into the steel framework in just a few hours onsite. Using an intelligent clever concept and three standardised types of apartments, this construction system can be adopted in other residential buildings in larger scales in both width and height. This visionary project provides the solution to replace the outdated buildings in the affordable rental apartment market with new ones in a fast, innovative and cost-effective way. Besides, the construction system can also be used as temporary dwellings for major renovation projects.
