COLLABORATION

  • Structural design development – depending on magnitude and level of complexity – all load-bearing structures or just timber load-bearing structures
  • Development of individual connections
  • Detail drawings and 3D modelling
  • Detail drawings and 3D modelling for production and assembly
  • Calculation and verification of structures and solutions
  • Modelling and consultations on fire safety solutions with the help of a fire protection engineer
  • General consultations: we will find out about your vision, project, desires and issues and offer a working plan or solution
  • In specific cases we can offer development of a full design project by enlisting an architect.

Modern Design

Our engineers work with industry-leading calculation and modelling software. They are familiar with the latest technologies for timber structure connections and assembly, and keep up to date with innovations

This allows us to offer our customers the best solutions and implement more complex projects to the highest level of precision. This gives our customers not just better safety standards, but also a more rational consumption of materials during construction.

ZAZA TIMBER Engineering SIA is part of the ZAZA Group, which also includes timber structure manufacturers and constructors.

The company was formed in 2016 and operated under the name Rodentia until 2021.

In 2021, we formed ZAZA TIMBER, a unified brand for construction, manufacture and design, and Rodentia changed its name to ZAZA TIMBER Engineering. The letters A and Z in the name point to the wide range of services we offer: a full service cycle from A to Z for timber construction. 

Our clients are architects, engineers and builders in Latvia and elsewhere in Europe. We have worked on projects of differing sizes and complexities. They include factories, warehouses, agricultural buildings, boat and transport sheds, office buildings, residential homes, sports facilities, bridges, concert halls, stages, petrol and electric vehicle charging stations.
