New BTA spin-off on innovative timber structures opens its doors

Swiss Timber Solutions AG, a new EIT Climate-KIC BTA spin-off at ETH Zurich has kicked off!

25 May 2016

The spin-off offers design and consultancy services for innovative timber structures.

The focus lies on the technologies that were developed at ETH Zurich and supported within the BTA program, i.e. the post-tensioned timber frame as well as new hybrid slab systems.


The company offers design and consulting of these newly developed structures as well as conventional timber structures.

The company’s portfolio is complemented by extended know-how in the field of fire engineering and timber connections and reinforcement.

The spin-off is therefore able to design a wide span of structures, implementing the latest scientific findings, which go beyond the normal application of the current Swiss standards. Therefore, Swiss Timber Solutions can cope with the demand for economically and ecologically timber constructions that stand out from standard solutions.
