For developers and other decision-makers, the planning of a project is vital. Choosing wood as the material for your project unlocks countless possibilities. It can save time and money and allows you to control the process from start to finish.
If you are an architect, you probably love wood just as much as we do. It’s a flexible material that allows you to create unique structures. At the same time, it’s sustainable, robust, and enables buildings to age with elegance.
For constructors, wood’s stability and sustainability credentials offer a great advantage. And with a high supporting capacity and good product attributes, massive wood may be just the solution you’re looking for.
Contractors need to focus on the building process. They need a material that is both quickly delivered and easy to assemble. The natural solution is wood! As a bonus, working with wood can result in a more relaxing and inviting work environment.
Surrounding yourself with wood can help you lead a happier and healthier life. Sustainability is an essential part of many people’s lives, and by choosing to live in a wooden home, you can significantly reduce your ecological footprint. In addition to that, wood creates a pleasant indoor climate which has numerous health benefits for residents.
With our experience of timber products, construction, building requirements and production, we can support you from the first draft to the finished project. Along with our partners, we will make sure that your project runs smoothly. Sometimes, for instance, you may simply need a second opinion. In those cases, we, as an independent party, can go through your documentation and make assessments based on our experience.
In a construction project, our offer is often most valuable early in the process. We’re happy to talk with constructors and architects and share our knowledge about building with wood – describing the material’s possibilities and limitations as well as identifying areas where small changes can be made to save money. Our support also ensures that you work with realistic ideas from the beginning.
In addition to smart, easy-to-install massive timber components, we offer a wide range of construction timber as well as façade cladding that is customised, painted and precisely cut. We also offer heat-treated products and special wood types, such as cedar.
Kilströmskaj is a project that highlights the opportunities for large-scale construction of multi-storey buildings in wood. The project consists of one six-storey and two four-storey apartment buildings, which will be constructed in three stages during 2020.
We supply cross-laminated timber (CLT) that creates a stable and durable framework, comprising pre-fabricated building elements with pre-installed connection systems to contribute to faster and easier assembly.
CLT is a building material with a high load-bearing capacity relative to its weight, which contributes to fewer truck journeys between the production unit and the construction site.
Few things are more natural than products from the Swedish forest. We are one of Europe's largest suppliers of wood for construction and almost all of our raw material comes from our owners' forests. These forests have been managed for generations, with great care and respect for nature. In order to maintain sustainable forestry, we plant at least three new trees for each that we harvest.
