Advantages of element and prefab construction

CO2-neutral raw material

Wood bonds CO2 and only releases this again during combustion or decomposition. With a timber house, you are supporting this natural cycle.

Cost effective

The short construction duration and high level of prefabrication means that timber construction has a clear advantage over other construction methods.

Durable and highly resistant

The oldest wooden building in Switzerland dates back to the 12th century and is located in Simplon Dorf. Ships and aircraft were built exclusively with wood for a very long period.

Indoor climate

Wood is cosy. Its ability to absorb and emit moisture again at all times creates a pleasant living climate.

More ecological

Renewable, environmentally friendly, short transportation routes, recyclable. These and many other arguments make wood the material of the future.

Rapid construction phase

Digital processes and well-established procedures make timber construction a flexible and rapid building method.

Strict fire protection

Wood burns – but predictably. Even in the event of a 1,000°C fire, wood remains undamaged and stable one centimetre below the charred surface.
