Timmerhuis Rotterdam

Timmerhuis Rotterdam


‘Timmerhuis’ will accommodate the town hall with audience and workspaces, 91 homes in a high-rise part and shops and restaurants at the streetside. The new building is built on a cleared courtyard, right in the city center, behind the monumental ‘Stadstimmerhuis’. Building with relatively small, prefabricated elements is a must.

The building consists of two steel cores around which a steel skeleton was built, composed of significant Vierendeel girders featuring cantilevers up to 17 m. The steel structure enables the desired modular layout of the building.

SBE was responsible for the following services:

  • Detailed engineering study (all main connections had to be designed as rigid nodes)
  • Erection study
  • General and workshop drawings
