Last week, the facade of the mock-up at SAWA’s construction site was finished with wooden slats. The cladding combined with the window frames gives a good idea of what the building will look like. Team Mei went for a quick site visit!
With this 1:1 setup, the size and scale of the solid CLT columns and beams become truly tangible. We also experience how the wood reflects and feels in the interior.
The SAWA mock-up is a test setup, in which the various connections and technical nodes that will soon be in the building are tested for, among other things, assembly speed and feasibility.
