Abstract

The book presents Slovenia’s contemporary timber architecture. Thanks to its abundant forests, Slovenia has preserved the tradition of wood construction. As much as 60% of its surface is covered by forests. Slovenia is also the third most forested country in Europe. The high share of forest-covered surface allows for a sustainable production of high-quality wood. In the past, wood was used primarily in the construction of farm buildings, but now timber architecture is used for everything from residences and office buildings to public buildings such as community centres and schools. Timber construction is becoming increasingly popular. Apart from larger companies taking this approach, a great number of wooden houses have sprung up, built either on personal initiative or with the support of carpenter workshops. Slovenian timber architecture has taken a new approach to environmental and energy-efficiency problems and received great international recognition. The book discusses over fifty projects built over a ten-year period, and includes descriptions, photographs, and plans. The projects include residential areas, administration, and office, as well as tourist, educational, and industrial buildings. Timber architecture is presented as an integral part of the Slovenian landscape. The monograph will be useful to designers and future experts in their planning of optimal timber buildings and will highlight the main benefits of using timber construction.

Abstract

Chapters cover the history of the material, the properties of plain, reinforced and prestressed concrete, surface finishes, the basic engineering principles of large and small structures and the building requirements with respect to thermal and sound insulation, fire protection and moisture control, reflecting the most recent standards and statutory instruments. Finally, a large number of built examples are presented - from photographs of the completed structures down to detailed plans - to illustrate the broad spectrum of applications for concrete in contemporary building. This volume demonstrates the potential of concrete and documents comprehensively the engineering principles of using concrete in construction.
