Ice Park Eilat - The largest timber structure in the Middle East

With 165 years of experience, WIEHAG is Europe's leading provider of wide-span bearing systems and complete roof systems, glulam, roof, ceiling and wall elements and 3-layer natural wood boards and formwork panels. WIEHAG offers efficient complete solutions from planning to production and logistics and assembly.

WIEHAG's showcase project in Israel is the Ice Park Eilat shopping and leisure centre which was planned by Feigin Architects. 660 beams were pre-fabricated in the Austrian plant and transported 2,500 km by container.

The beam structure, divided into six spherical triangles and four rings, will be erected during the two-month assembly phase. With a width of 105 m and a pitch of a good 15 m, the construction is the largest timber construction in the Middle East.
