Features

Integrate different uses in the height

Easy to mix different user and family types

6.4% more GIA (SHAB) compared to mineral based benchmark due to thinner walls

Practical completion at least 3 weeks earlier than benchmark

Construction phase at least 20% shorter (-10 weeks) than the benchmark

Beam and column frame to: maximize flexibility in design, use different floorplans across the building, assure adaptability for the future

Prefabricated non-load bearing timber frame envelope to simplify the design and construction process and procurement and maximize the level of prefabrication

Mass timber core and compartment walls for horizontal stabilization, fire safety and acoustic performance

Why Wood Image, Wool 2-Storey Building Render

Why wood?

Wooden industrial buildings offer you the most sustainable low-carbon alternative on the market and are also known to improve wellbeing and productivity.

 

Our concepts show you a range of solutions that are cost-efficient to construct using a combination of massive-engineered wood products. The solutions are flexible and modular and designed for manufacture and assembly. They can even be made for disassembly and reassembly at the end of life.

The benefits of building with wood

60% lower embodied carbon compared to the EU benchmark

Smooth process – designed for manufacture and assembly (DfMA)

Can also be designed for disassembly and reassembly: improving profitability

Increased well-being and productivity in wooden buildings

Cost-competitive
