Timber Domes Brindisi
With a span of 143 m, both two coal storage domes for Enel in Brindisi, Italy are Europe’s largest timber structures. In total 3,096m3 Glulam was used, as well as 44,000m2 of CLT. Compared with steel and aluminium the geodesic domes made of timber prove to be the most efficient: they combine a minimal use of material with maximum speed in construction. The latter was mainly powered by the innovative connector. This connector, which is developed by Adviesbureau Lüning, enables the construction of the two domes without the need for scaffolding. Glulam beams could be installed directly from the crane. This means a great saving on both construction time and costs. Extensive failure tests on the connectors were carried out at the University of Trento, Italy.
