Leander Bathon has the idea to glue metal plates into wood, in order to connect wood with other building materials.
First test specimens are manufactured in cooperation with the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences in Germany.
The HBV system is developed.
The HBV system is implemented in a 400 m² office building for the first time.
Since March 2004 there has been a general technical approval from the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) in Berlin under the number Z-9.1-557 for the HBV systems.
The Hessian Cooperation Award (Hessische Kooperationspreis) is awarded to our wood-concrete composite ceilings (HBV ceilings) for spans of up to 20 meters.
TiComTec GmbH is founded with the goal of further developing and distributing the HBV systems.
The German Timber Construction Prize (Deutsche Holzbaupreis) is awarded for the HBV system in the category components/concepts for glued-in expanded metal as a connector for bridges.
An innovative solution for the wood-steel adhesive bond was another goal and was achieved after a 10 year development of the glued-in perforated sheets. This was recognized in 2013 with the presentation of the Schweighofer Innovation Prize (Schweighofer Innovationspreises).
In November 2014, the general technical approval for the HSK systems was granted by the DIBt under the number Z-9.1-770.
… we have been planning, accompanying and carrying out various projects all over the world.
