Global wood tech
GWT team of structural engineers makes use of the most recent technological developments in timber construction to provide optimized project solutions. We deliver fully processed and 3D modeled prefab components and calculations compliant to the International Building Code (IBC), Eurocodes (EC), Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS) or any other local regulation specified by clients.
Structural analysis is handled with Robot Structural Analysis Professional Autodesk® software, a powerful 3D FEA program developed to define and size planar and spatial structural systems (composed of plates, walls, shells and members) and to determine assemblies suitable to materials in use (wood, steel, concrete…) . RSA integrates all different types of loads acting on structures : dead load, live load, impact load and rolling load, wind (cyclonic if hurricane area) and seismic. The Wind Load Simulation function is particularly advanced. This dynamic simulator analyses buildings according to their geometry and geographical location then generates wind loads with the highest accuracy. Fire resistance rating as defined by clients or local building codes is also taken into consideration…
Modeliling is carried out through the newest Cadwork ® version available. The leading 3D-CAD/CAM software in timber construction offers global solutions that covers each stage of a project, from designing to site management through to coding and production.
The GWT technical department produces all data in-house, from structural 3D files to engineering details and plans for pre-study, execution, manufacturing and assembly project phases…
GWT provides photorealistic 3D visualization services for all your projects. These high-quanlity images allow you to show your clients and investors a comprehensive simulation of your projects.
We offer the following services:
– 3D modeling & rendering
– 3D 360° panorama
– 3D video animation
– 2D & 3D floor plan
On the basis of approved production plans, prefabrication is contracted to leading mass timber manufacturers in Europe, primarily to KLH and Binderholz for solid wood slabs and Hasslacher for glulam beams and columns. Processed with advanced CNC systems at optimal accuracy, our structural elements are exclusively produced according to project specifications…
Over twenty years of operations, GWT founders have gained a substantial experience in international project procurement via tendering or competitive bidding process. In addition to our expertise in timber structures engineering, manufacturing and assembling, we market a comprehensive range of products outsourced from a reputable network of vendors.
GWT projects involve subcontractors and vendors located on different continents. Our mass timber elements are mainly produced in Germany and Austria, while other building materials are regularly outsourced form Scandinavia and North America…
In cooperation with general contractors, GWT provide in-house project managers, supervisors and carpenters qualified in both mass timber and wood frame construction systems. On location, CLT panels are handled by a construction crane while other supplies are generally mounted using only simple power tools. From visas & permits issuing to work completion date…
