The parish in the tri-border-region (Germany – Switzerland – France) at this time had already about 2,000 members and therefore needed an adequate building. Thanks to our HBV systems the parish is now able to offer its members a large room for up to 2,500 people. Besides the large room for the Sunday services the parish now also has a chapel for smaller groups as well as several rooms, where the five to twelve year old Christians can age-appropriately be cared for.

Thanks to the enormous load capacity of our HBV systems span widths of up to 11 m were no problem at all, and the demands of the French authorities concerning buildings with such a high volume of people could be completely met. An altogether amount of 1,200 m³ glue-laminated timber was used for the building. The ceiling surface of 1,000 m² was constructed as HBV ceiling with various sizes of HBV thrust connectors. With our HBV systems these were even able to verify the fire protection classification F60.
