The Martinson Group delivers a new laminated timber arena using Statcon
The Martinson Group, a leading company in the construction of a sustainable and future-proof society uses Statcon in its mission to design, deliver and assemble frames and stands in glulam, as well as floor joists in KL wood. By taking advantage of the unique building properties of glulam and KL-wood, Martinson’s has, among other things, developed building systems for halls, bridges and apartment buildings.
The Group was commissioned by NCC to design, deliver and assemble the frame and stands in laminated timber and beams to the IFU Arena in Uppsala, Sweden.
“We have been using Statcon a lot in this project. It does not work for large trusses but for everything else it is by far the fastest, says Niclas Kjell, designer and project manager at Martinsons Byggsystem.”
Having used Statcon for many years, the update to include Eurocode specs and general product development in close cooperation with the customer was really beneficial to the development of ths project.
“Statcon has become better and better during the last years. It used to be harder to put loads and transfer loads between different parts of the building. Today, the software has a better structure and it is quick and easy to work in. Also, I have a great relationship with the developers at Elecosoft. They are responsive to improvement opportunities and very knowledgeable, both in the actual software and in construction. The last time I suggested changes in the structure, the software’s functionality changed immediately, says Niclas.”
