HASSLACHER Group plant expansion

Location: Stall im Mölltal

In an astonishingly short amount of time the Stall im Mölltal/Carinthia branch was developed into a production facility for concrete composite elements to be used in timber construction.

The plant expansion is mainly aimed at establishing a pioneering production plant for the manufacture of standard and custom building elements from cross laminated timber, for instance ready-to-install timber building elements for walls and ceilings.

Earthwork for the erection of the approx. 10,000 m² production hall has started in April of 2019. 10,000 m³ of fresh concrete were delivered to the Möll Valley and cast for foundation and cellar work. Adding to this are many pre-manufactured concrete elements for the 2,500 m² underground supply and collector ducts as well as the superstructure supports. The timber construction also boasted respectable quantities: HASSLACHER’s Hermagor/Carinthia location provided 1,000 m³ of glued laminated timber while the Magdeburg/Saxony-Anhalt delivered 1,300 m³ of glulam ceiling elements for the roof.

Project information
Location: Stall im Mölltal
Architect/designer: Trecolore Architects
Structural analysis and construction: Ingenieurbüro Bruno Kalles
Client: NORITEC Holzindustrie GmbH
Year of construction: 2019/2020
Products used: Custom glued laminated timber elements, glulam ceiling elements    

Investments in the expansion of the Stall im Mölltal location will location will broaden the product range and increase the added value of our core range. In addition to 90,000 m² of earthmoving and 10,000 m³ of fresh concrete, 1,000 m³ of glued laminated timber special components and 1,300 m³ of glulam ceiling elements were required for the roof construction for the 10,000 m² production hall. This step will further strengthen our position as a leading innovator in cross-laminated timber production while simultaneously creating additional jobs and much needed apprenticeship positions in Upper Carinthia.
