Two pioneers in modern timber construction

We are two expert engineers in the field of timber construction since the beginning. We combine well-founded practical knowledge with intensive teaching and research work at universities. Timber constructions have fascinated us since the mid-1980s, long before the trend began. Since then, we have been developing and promoting the design with timber and are extensively researching novel timber structures and construction details. At the holztragwerke.ch we combine and integrate the expertise of two successful engineering companies.
