For the construction, the planners chose four 8 mm thick Ultrastrong laminated safety panes from Glas Trösch to meet the structural requirements related to the storey height.

Because the existing building in Weinfelden reached its limits, a new two-storey building has now been erected on the 19,000 square metre site across the road. It was designed by the Swiss architects Itten+Brechbühl AG.

For its construction, the planners chose four 8 mm thick Ultrastrong laminated safety panes from Glas Trösch to meet the structural requirements related to the storey height. As a result, the curtain wall not only protects the insulating glass and textile sun protection behind it; it also offers thermal benefits thanks to the continuous ventilation.

The SILVERSTAR ZERO Eplus insulating glass from Glas Trösch, on the other hand, ranks among the most modern and energy-efficient multiple insulating glazings and is especially well suited for buildings constructed to the Swiss Minergie standard.

As a Minergie ECO building, it satisfies both stringent requirements in respect of sound insulation and construction ecology as well as exacting standards regarding daylight utilisation inside. In addition, the multifunctional insulating glass ensures clear vision thanks to the exceptional colour neutrality. The DGNB German Sustainable Building Council awarded the building its Gold Certificate.
