ZÜBLIN Timber secures Gare Maritime construction contract

Radisson Hotel Group has opened Palace Hotel Tallinn, a member of Radisson Individuals, in Estonia’s capital city Tallinn.

German construction company Züblin’s subsidiary ZÜBLIN Timber has received a contract from CFE Bouw Vlaanderen for BIM.5D design and timber construction at Gare Maritime in Brussels, Belgium.

The Gare Maritime project involves restoration of a former freight station covering nearly 45,000m².

It comprises seven interconnected train sheds that Extensa Group transformed into an office, retail, restaurant and event complex.

Under the new €12m contract, ZÜBLIN Timber will construct 12 four-storey all-timber buildings with ribbed slabs on top of a supporting structure. Each building will feature a staircase in the centre.

The company plans to install 9,000m³ of wood, with 6,000m³ cross-laminated timber (CLT) and 3,000m³ of glued laminated timber (GLT) over ten months.

ZÜBLIN Timber project manager Martin Schimpf said: “Thanks to the innovative BIM-based design and planning methods, well-coordinated interfaces and modern products, we can easily deal with the task at hand.”

Gare Maritime is expected to be a roofed village with retail, restaurants, businesses and public events space, as well as avenues, parks and squares. The structure will feature a controlled climate matched to the individual seasons.

Züblin has also won a separate construction contract from Carlsberg Byen for a building ensemble in Carlsberg, Copenhagen, Denmark.

This project will be built on a former brewery site in Valby district, covering 49,000m² of floor area. It is expected to be completed in 2021.

As part of the contract, Züblin will construct a second 80m Vogelius Tower block consisting of housing, offices and an underground car park across two connecting buildings – Kjeldahl House and Djørup House.

Carlsberg Byen also awarded the contract for the first tower, Dahlerup Tower, under this project to Züblin.
