Procedure for a prefabricated house
Wood bonds CO2 and only releases this again during combustion or decomposition. With a timber house, you are supporting this natural cycle.
The short construction duration and high level of prefabrication means that timber construction has a clear advantage over other construction methods.
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.
Wood is cosy. Its ability to absorb and emit moisture again at all times creates a pleasant living climate.
Renewable, environmentally friendly, short transportation routes, recyclable. These and many other arguments make wood the material of the future.
Digital processes and well-established procedures make timber construction a flexible and rapid building method.
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.
Bridges, halls, kitchens and stairs – wood can be used anywhere and combined with other materials.
