Mactan Cebu Airport in timber construction

Major international order for Rubner Holzbau in Ober-Grafendorf:
Innovative terminal construction project in the Philippines
The second-largest airport in the Philippines, Mactan Cebu International Airport, will be expanded and an additional new terminal will be added by 2018.
The wave-shaped, barrel-roofed structure of the new 65,000 sqm building will be created from arched beams made of glulam wood. A total of 4,500 m³ of glulam timber will be manufactured in Ober-Grafendorf before being shipped overseas. Under the supervision of Rubner Holzbau, it will be installed in Lapu-Lapu City on Mactan Island as early as November. The timber construction has to be finished by March 2017 so that the new terminal can open on schedule.

This project is the largest order that has ever been received for a structure made of glulamen in the entire company history of Rubner Holzbau in Ober-Grafendorf. At once there is also no other airport building anywhere in Asia that is constructed entirely from glulam.

The challenge is enormous and is attracting attention around the world. For Rubner Holzbau, this large order is proof that the company – already a leader in engineered timber construction throughout Europe – is also playing in the top leagues on an international level when it comes to the planning and implementation of sophisticated wood-based architectural projects.
