Prefabricated timber construction combines unique architecture with a precise, efficient construction method. Well-conceived planning and production processes and prefabrication in the factory guarantee reliable scheduling and maximum cost transparency. Timber as a construction material provides complete design freedom and, moreover, creates pleasant indoor working and living spaces.

Elementary precision

Clients and all others involved in construction projects appreciate the precision of planning and production as well as reliable processes with scheduling and cost certainty in timber element construction. The impressive benefits of prefabricated construction are due to the high degree of prefabrication of the construction parts.

This shortens the construction phase on site. Noise nuisance or interruptions to rent when properties cannot be leased – such as with a conversion – only last a short time. And by the way: timber’s light weight makes extensions and the addition of storeys possible even in situations where statics requirements leave no scope for other materials.

Advantages of prefabricated timber construction in summary

  • Production in the factory goes ahead independent of weather conditions, at consistently high quality and exactly according to schedule.
  • Building components are planned and produced with complete precision from start to finish.
  • The components can be erected quickly at the construction site and do not require any drying time.
  • The building components are already set up with provision for electricity, water and heating, or with elements such as balconies or windows.
  • Timber as a construction material is inherently lightweight and boasts excellent insulating properties.

The Hortus office building in Allschwil, designed by Herzog & de Meuron Architects and the engineers of ZPF, is being realised by us using wood and natural materials. As a pioneer in ecological construction projects, the owner SENN strives to set new standards. The building is expected to generate a surplus energy on 10,000 m2 of usable space and to compensate for the grey energy of the building after 30 years. By using local materials such as soil and wood for wood-clay composite ceilings, as well as recycled paper for the facade and maximising the use of photovoltaics, the aim is to create a climate-friendly building.
